General Dynamics Electric Boat Awarded Contract for Virginia-Class Submarines

General Dynamics Electric Boat, a business unit of General Dynamics, was awarded a $217 million contract for Long Lead Time Material associated with the construction of Virginia-class submarines SSN 814 and SSN 815.

The contract totals $216,510,000. Work will be performed in Minneapolis, Minnesota; Spring Grove, Illinois; York, Pennsylvania; Bethlehem, Pennsylvania; Florence, New Jersey; Windsor Locks, Connecticut; Warren, Massachusetts; Salem, Ohio; South El Monte, California; Tacoma, Washington; and other locations and is expected to be completed by September 2034. The contract was effective as of Oct. 13.

“This contract will enable Electric Boat to begin the acquisition of critical material and components for submarines that require substantial lead time to manufacture and deliver,” said Kevin Graney, president of General Dynamics Electric Boat. “Advanced procurement is essential to achieve the high-rate production the Navy requires of the submarine industrial base. A consistent demand signal is necessary for our suppliers to invest in and grow their operations.”

General Dynamics Electric Boat is the prime contractor and lead design yard for the Virginia class and constructs the ships in a teaming arrangement with Huntington Ingalls Industries’ Newport News Shipbuilding in Virginia.
