Under the terms of the contract, General Dynamic Electric Boat will continue to provide skilled personnel to perform non-nuclear submarine repair work at the Naval Submarine Base, New London, Connecticut, in support of returning mission ready submarines to the fleet. Work will be performed in Groton, Connecticut and is expected to be completed by Dec 2017.
