General Dynamics has won a $31.7 million modification contract for reactor plant planning yard services for nuclear-powered submarines and support yard services for the Navy’s Moored Training Ships.

A Moored training ship (MTS) is a United States (US) Navy designation for nuclear powered submarines that have been converted to training ships for the Naval Nuclear Power Training Command's Nuclear Power Training Unit (NPTU) at Naval Support Activity Charleston in South Carolina. 

The Navy uses decommissioned nuclear submarines and converts them to MTSs to train personnel in the operation and maintenance of submarines and their nuclear reactors. 

Work is expected to be completed by September 2019, US Department of Defense said in a statement Friday.
