McKean to Provide Ship Sustainment, Maintenance for NSWC Philadelphia Division

McKean Defense Group, an employee-owned ship integrator, has landed a contract to provide ship sustainment and maintenance for Naval Surface Warfare Center Philadelphia Division.

The $20 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract will support Materials, Structures, Environmental and Protection Division 33, McKean said.

“The team we assembled for this effort provides Division 33 with access to hundreds of personnel who already support their mission critical programs,” said Joseph Carlini, CEO of McKean Defense.

Carlini added that McKean Defense has been supporting NSWCPD for more than a decade through multiple prime contracts.

Under the terms of the new five-year contract, McKean Defense will provide in-service engineering, inspection and testing, material assessments and compliance, materials studies and analyses, environmental analyses, ship systems hardening and machinery controls analysis.

The scope of the work also includes machinery systems integration, machinery research and development, logistics integration and analyses, training development, technical manual development and management, environmental engineering and instrumentation and calibration, McKean Defense said.

Although work will be done in Philadelphia, support will also be provided to Navy sites outside the continental United States, the company added.

McKean Defense is a Pennsylvania-based company that specializes in life cycle management, engineering, enterprise transformation and total ship integration.

The company said its staff is trained to identify and deploy new shipboard technologies, integrate information technology across platforms, implement cyber systems and develop strategies to support warfighters.

In March, McKean Defense also received a five-year NSWCPD contract to support Code 516’s hull, mechanical and electrical controls program under the Future Surface Combatant Project.
