NASA has awarded a contract to Precision Mechanical, Inc., in Cocoa, Florida, for the manufacture, fabrication and installation of upgrades to the Liquid Hydrogen (LH2) System at Launch Complex 39B at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
This firm fixed-price contract has a potential total value of $60.3 million. The LH2 system upgrade includes integration of a new minimum 1.25-million-gallon LH2 storage sphere, associated vaporizers, flare stack and propane system, fill manifold, piping, valves, and controls.
Launch Complex 39B is undergoing a metamorphosis from top to bottom to support the agency’s Space Launch System (SLS) rocket and Orion spacecraft for their first integrated uncrewed flight test.
