Austal USA's Global Services Division Earns $21 Million LCS Post Delivery Award

Mobile, Ala. – The U.S. Navy awarded Austal USA a $$21,529,121 order yesterday to perform planned post delivery services on the Independence-variant Littoral Combat Ship USS Charleston (LCS 18). Austal’s west coast operations team will perform the work in Seattle, Washington, with services scheduled to be completed by September 2020.

“The fact we’ve received our third LCS post shakedown availability contract in less than 11 months is a testament to our services team and the great work they’re doing to support the Navy’s small surface combatant fleet,” said Craig Perciavalle, president of Austal USA.

As the number of Austal-built ships in the fleet continues to grow, the company is expanding its west coast operations in San Diego and its Asia-Pacific operations in Singapore to meet the Navy’s current and planned deployments of small surface combatants and Expeditionary Fast Transports.
