$35.2M to American Bridge for New Pier at New London Submarine Base

American Bridge Co. in Richmond, VA won a $35.2 million firm-fixed-price contract for the construction of Pier 31 at U.S. Naval Submarine Base New London. American Bridge will demolish the existing pier and build a new facility, which will include a pile-supported pier with concrete deck, electrical shore power, pier lighting, communications, cable, telephone, lightning protection, water, sewer, compressed air, pure water and oily waste/waste oil piping connections off-pier, bitts, jib cranes, retractable craneless brows, rubber-faced steel fendering system and specialized equipment.

DID has more on the New London submarine base…

The U.S. Naval Submarine Base New London is located on the east side of Thames River in Groton, CT. All submariners are stationed there for training and perhaps a tour onboard a fast attack submarine or with a pre-commissioning crew while their submarine is under construction, notes Globalsecurity.org. The base is home to more than 40 tenant commands, including the submarines and crews of Submarine Group TWO, the faculty and students of the Submarine School, and the Naval Submarine Support Facility.

The base supports 21 attack submarines and the Navy’s nuclear research deep submersible NR-1. The base occupies approximately 500 acres and has over 400 buildings, with the housing and support facilities for 10,000 active duty and civilian workers and their families.

American Bridge expects to complete the base’s new pier by November 2010. This contract was competitively procured via the Navy Electronic Commerce Online website, with 5 proposals received by the Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Mid-Atlantic in Norfolk, VA (N40085-09-C-7011).
