Navy awards maintenance pier replacement in Bremerton, WA
Bremerton, WA (May 2, 2008) Nova/Tutor-Saliba was awarded today the contract for the CVN Maintenance Pier Replacement at Naval Base Kitsap in Bremerton, WA. This is a $122 million design/build project to demolish Pier Bravo and construct a new ship repair wharf (85’ x1325’), including the replacement of approximately 600 lineal feet of quay wall (Structure 729), the strengthening of the 1,000 lineal feet of sheet pile wall west of the Dry Dock 6 mole, and the demolition of Pier 8.
The new aircraft carrier maintenance pier will be an improvement not only for work on modern nuclear-powered carriers such as USS John C. Stennis and USS Abraham Lincoln, but would put infrastructure in place for the next generation of aircraft carriers. The existing pier is 60 years old and too narrow to accommodate a crane and other equipment necessary for work on Nimitz-class carriers.
Bremerton's shipyard performs maintenance and repairs on both aircraft carriers based in the Puget Sound area: the Stennis, homeported in Bremerton, and the Lincoln, homeported in Everett.
The next class of aircraft carriers, now named the CVN 21 class, uses the same basic hull design as the Nimitz class, but requires fewer crew members and features new types of reactors, catapults and arresting gear
