Collins, King Announce Nearly $30 Million Navy Contract for Cianbro for PSNY Repairs

November 21, 2016

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senators Susan Collins and Angus King today announced that Cianbro Corp. of Pittsfield has been awarded a $28,860,243 contract from the U.S. Navy to perform structural repairs at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard (PNSY) in Kittery.

``Portsmouth Naval Shipyard plays a critical role in the defense of our country, and it`s important that the shipyard has the tools and infrastructure needed to continue in that mission,`` said Senators Collins and King in a joint statement. ``We applaud Cianbro for securing this competitive contract from the Navy and expect that their work on repairs will provide valuable support to the daily operations at PNSY.``

This competitively-awarded contract will support repairs and modernization of pile supported open wharf structures at PSNY`s Berth 11. The project aims to restore the load carrying capacity of the crane rail system on the shipyard`s waterfront, while providing corrosion protection to the wharf. The work is expected to be completed by March 2019.

Cianbro is a construction and construction services company based in Pittsfield.

Senator Collins is a senior member of the Senate Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, and Senator King is a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee.
