Suite de mon post de mardi sur les Coast Guards et l’Arctique.

Le Pentagone a annoncé que les chantiers VT Halter Marine ont été chargés de la construction de trois “Polar Security Cutter“, des brise-glace, pour un coût total de près de 2 milliards de $. Ces trois bâtiments font partie d’un groupe de six dont la construction a été actée. Les trois Polar Security Cutters sont les plus gros des six du programme US. L’appel d’offres a été émis en mars 2018.

Il s’agit de renforcer la flotte arctique des Coast Guards, flotte qui comprend seulement deux unités lourdes (“heavy”): le Coast Guard Cutter Polar Star et le Coast Guard Cutter Polar Sea, ainsi qu’une unité moyenne, le Coast Guard Cutter Healy, entré en service en 2000.

L’avis d’attribution du marché:
VT Halter Marine Inc., Pascagoula, Mississippi, is awarded a $745,940,860 fixed-price incentive-firm contract for the detail design and construction of the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) Polar Security Cutter (PSC) (formerly the Heavy Polar Ice Breaker). The PSC program is a multiple year Department of Homeland Security Level 1 investment and a USCG major system acquisition to acquire up to three multi-mission PSCs to recapitalize the USCG fleet of heavy icebreakers which have exhausted their design service life. The PSC’s mission will be to ensure continued access to both polar regions and support the country’s economic, commercial, maritime, and national security needs. This contract includes options which, if exercised, would bring the cumulative value of this contract to $1,942,812,266. Work will be performed in Pascagoula, Mississippi (61 percent); Metairie, Louisiana (12 percent); New Orleans, Louisiana (12 percent); San Diego, California (4 percent); Mossville, Illinois (4 percent); Mobile, Alabama (2 percent); Boca Raton, Florida (2 percent); and various other locations (3 percent), and is expected to be completed by Voir l’article en entier
