Contracted work is due to be completed by December next year. The Supervisor of Shipbuilding in Groton is serving as the contracting authority.

Furthermore, the contract will allow the company to continue operating the New England Maintenance Manpower Initiative (NEMMI) at the submarine base.

NEMMI was created in 1999 to transfer ‘non-submarine qualified military billets’ at the Naval Submarine Support Facility in New London to GD Electric Boat shipyard employees.

The Naval Submarine Base New London is a key facility for the US Navy. It is home to 17 attack submarines, including Los Angeles-class and Virginia-class vessels.

The base provides support facilities for the operational attack submarines of the US Navy, military organisations and tenant commands.
