18 Aug 2020
U.S. Rep. Joe Courtney, who heads the U.S. House subcommittee with oversight of Navy shipbuilding, applauded Monday the Navy’s decision to award a more than $125 million contract for maintenance on the USS Hartford (SSN-768) to Electric Boat.
The contract is expected to support work at the Groton shipyard through February 2022, Courtney's office said in a news release Monday.
“Groton is home to some of the most talented shipbuilders in the world, and today’s announcement by the Navy is another endorsement of the value that they and other private shipyards contribute to the readiness of our submarine force,” Courtney said in a statement.
