NORTH KINGSTOWN - General Dynamics Electric Boat landed a $100.4 million contract modification from the U.S. Navy to provide lead-yard services for Virginia-class nuclear-powered attack submarines.

Under the contract, Electric Boat will develop, maintain and update design drawings and data for the Navy for each Virginia-class submarine throughout the construction and post-shakedown periods.

According to a General Dynamics release, the contract has a potential cumulative value of $881 million through 2014 if all contract options are exercised and funded.

The work will be done by EB’s engineering and design organization, which is made up of more than 4,000 employees.

“Possessing proven technical capabilities, these employees work on all facets of the submarine lifecycle from concept formulation and design through construction, maintenance and modernization, and eventually to inactivation and disposal,” said the General Dynamics release.
