Electric Boat Awarded $698M USS Hartford Overhaul Contract
The U.S. Navy awarded a nearly $700 million contract to General Dynamics Electric Boat to complete the overhaul of the USS Hartford.
The ship, originally commissioned in 1994, is a Los-Angeles class submarine that was named after the capital city.
The $698 million contract is a modification of a previously awarded contract for the maintenance and repair of the submarine.
“This engineering overhaul of the USS Hartford will enhance its warfighting capability and extend the ship’s service life, returning a valuable asset to the U.S. Navy submarine fleet,” president of General Dynamics Electric Boat Kevin Graney said.

Graney said modernization and maintenance operations are among the many projects employees in New London are working on currently.
This specific contract uses funding previously authorized under the National Defense Authorization Act. Connecticut U.S. House Representative Joe Courtney, who chairs the House Armed Services Committee’s seapower subcommittee said the contract will fuel activity at both the shipyard and throughout the manufacturing sector in the state.
Work will be done at the company’s Groton shipyard. It is expected to be completed by October 2026.
