Maine Congresswoman Chellie Pingree said Bath Iron Works has won two Navy contracts totaling more than $57 million for fleet maintenance and engineering projects.

BATH, Maine (AP) _ Pingree said this week that half the money is for design and engineering work on the Littoral Combat Ship. The ship is designed for coastal operations such as transporting equipment onshore for amphibious missions and mine-sweeping.

The other half of the money is going to fleet maintenance.

Pingree is a member of the House Appropriations Committee, which determines funding for Navy programs.
