SEATTLE – The U.S. Coast Guard has awarded Todd Pacific Shipyards Corporation a $3,443,681 modification to a previously awarded contract Hin support of repairs and alterations performed during the dockside availability of the icebreaker USCGC Healy (WAGB-20). The contract modification provides for the alteration and repair of the ship’s systems, engines and shipboard equipment. The work will be accomplished at the Coast Guard’s pier in Seattle beginning immediately and is expected to be completed in January 2008.
