The U.S. Navy has awarded Bath Iron Works a $32.5 million contract modification to perform technical and industrial engineering work on the future USS Michael Monsoor, the second Zumwalt-class destroyer, at its Bath shipyard.

The modification follows a $24.4 million modification awarded in April for additional detail design and construction of the Navy’s newest class of destroyers.

BIW is building three DDG 1000s for the U.S. Navy, which truncated the line after deeming construction costs to be too high. The USS Zumwalt, named for Adm. Elmo R. “Bud” Zumwalt Jr., was christened in April.

The DDG 1001 is scheduled for delivery to the Navy in early 2015, and the third stealth destroyer, the DDG 1002, to be named the USS Lyndon B. Johnson, is due in 2018.
