    Bath Iron Works has been awarded a $202 million contract to continue providing planning yard services for DDG 51 Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyers, according to a press release from the shipyard.

    The contract is for the first year, with four optional ones. If the U.S. Navy fully funds the remaining option years, the total value of the contract would be $1.1 billion, according to the shipyard.

    The planning yard services include availability planning, design, material kitting, logistics, configuration and onsite support, the shipyard said. The majority of the services will be performed in Maine.

    “We are proud to continue providing these important planning yard services, making sure DDG 51-type destroyers — the workhorse of the Navy fleet — receive efficient and timely life-cycle support,” BIW President Charles F. Krugh said in a statement.
