Tridentis was just awarded a three year $2.3M prime contract by Military Sealift Command (MSC) to perform engineering services on the USS MOUNT WHITNEY Extended Service Life Program. Our work on this contract will consist of supporting the Engineering Directorate of MSC in the areas of marine engineering, naval architecture, electrical and electronics engineering, maintenance engineering, shipboard testing and inspections and failure analysis. The majority of the work on this contract will be performed in Washington DC and the ship’s homeport of Gaeta, Italy.
MSC is responsible for the operation and maintenance of the USS MOUNT WHITNEY (LCC 20). The USS MOUNT WHITNEY has been in commission over 40 years and is at the end of her designed service life. The US Navy has decided to extend her service life through 2039. This extension is to be facilitated by major modifications and repairs that are to be coordinated by the Extended Service Life Program (ESLP). The ESLP is a multi-year, $100M effort consisting of five shipyard maintenance availabilities between FY2014 and FY2019. In support of these maintenance availabilities Tridentis will be developing and managing over 100 specifications and drawings necessary to accomplish the ESLP scope of work. In addition, Tridentis will also be performing engineering analyses, surveys, studies, ship checks and similar efforts as required to support the development of the ELSP work packages.
