3PSC LLC Wins Maintenance Contract for US Naval Ships
3PSC LLC, seated in Norfolk, Va., has been awarded a $34.1 million modification under a previously awarded firm-fixed-price contract to exercise a one-year option for the operation and maintenance of six oceanographic/survey U.S. Naval ships.
The ships are operated for the Naval Oceanographic Office to conduct military surveys. Work will be performed worldwide, and is expected to be completed by October 2014.
3PSC was recently acquired by Maersk Line, Limited headquartered in Norfolk, VA. MLL will take over 3PSC’s current contract for the operation and maintenance of special mission ships owned by the U.S. Navy’s Military Sealift Command.
In 2009, 3PSC was awarded the contract for the operation and maintenance of Military Sealift Command (MSC) oceanographic survey ships. Six of MSC’s seven oceanographic ships are multipurpose and perform acoustic, biological, physical and geophysical surveys, providing much of the U.S. military’s information on the ocean environment. These ships use multi-beam, wide-angle, precision sonar systems that make it possible to continuously chart a broad section of ocean floor.
