NASSCO Awarded $10 Million Contract for Bonhomme Richard Clean-Up
[gCaptain]The U.S. Department of Defense has awarded a $10 million contract modification to General Dynamics NASSCO for the clean-up and dewatering of the USS Bonhomme Richard, which caught fire at Naval Base San Diego earlier this month.

The $10 million cost-plus-fixed-fee modification contract will cover emergency firefighting support, dewatering, safety and initial clean-up efforts.

The USS Bonhomme Richard, a Wasp-class amphibious assault ship, suffered a devastating fire on July 12 while undergoing maintenance. The fire started in a lower deck before spreading to upper decks and the vessel’s control tower. Several fire fighters and U.S. Navy sailors suffered minor injuries battling the fire.

The exact cause of the fire is still under investigation.

Work will be performed in San Diego, California, and is expected to be completed by November 2020.
Then the decision will be made (or already made) to repair or scrap the 25 year old hull.

#2 The original damage is ...what? An 'Act of God" that happened in their shipyard so they aren't responsible?
