KITTERY, Maine (AP) - A Biddeford company will get $15 million from the U.S. Navy for projects at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard and other New England naval facilities.

Sens. Susan Collins and Angus King say the money is going to Oak Point Associates.

The company will provide architectural and engineering services to support Naval Facilities Engineering Command projects at the facilities. The command is responsible for managing planning, design and construction at shore facilities that the Navy operates.

Collins is a Republican and King is an independent. The Maine senators say the contract will allow Oak Point Associates to help strengthen military installations throughout New England.
