BATH — The U.S. Navy awarded Bath Iron Works a nearly $663 million contract to build the next in a line of DDG-51 destroyers.

U.S. Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, a member of the Senate’s Armed Services Committee and Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, announced the news Tuesday.

BIW was awarded the ship, known as DDG-116, last year through a competitive process.
