B&W Awarded Contract to Manufacture Missile Tubes for Ohio Replacement Nuclear Submarines

The Babcock & Wilcox Company (B&W) (NYSE:BWC) announced today that its subsidiary Babcock & Wilcox Nuclear Operations Group, Inc. (B&W NOG) has been awarded a competitively bid contract to manufacture a number of missile tube assemblies from an initial order for the Ohio Replacement nuclear submarine program.

The contract was awarded to B&W NOG by General Dynamics Electric Boat. The work will be conducted at B&W’s Mount Vernon, Ind., manufacturing facility and is expected to be completed in 2017. B&W expects to add approximately 30 new jobs at Mount Vernon to support this activity.


“B&W has a history of manufacturing missile tube assemblies for U.S. nuclear submarines, but it’s been since the 1990s that they have been needed,” said Peyton S. Baker, President and Chief Operations Officer for B&W’s Government & Nuclear Operations Group. “With the Ohio Replacement program moving forward, we are honored to be conducting this work again as part of our overall portfolio of national security projects.”
