US Navy destroyer USS Ramage has completed overhaul and modernization at Huntington Ingalls Industries’ Ingalls Shipbuilding division and was delivered to the navy four days ahead of schedule, HII said on August 22.

The ship, originally built by Ingalls and delivered to the Navy in 1995, arrived in Pascagoula last November for overhaul and modernization work.

Overhaul and modification work included procurement of materials, ship alterations and repairs. After final work and testing, USS Ramage was able to rejoin the fleet ahead of schedule.

“It was a privilege to modernize and overhaul USS Ramage,” said Ingalls Shipbuilding President Brian Cuccias. “The success of this project proves our shipbuilders have the skills and expertise to handle any project. Most of all, they understood the importance of getting this ship back into active duty for our U.S. Navy sailors.”

Ingalls has delivered 29 Arleigh Burke-class destroyers to the Navy, most recently delivering John Finn (DDG 113), which was commissioned on July 15 in Pearl Harbor. Other destroyers currently under construction at Ingalls include Ralph Johnson (DDG 114) Paul Ignatius (DDG 117), Delbert D. Black (DDG 119), Frank E. Petersen Jr. (DDG 121) and Lenah H. Sutcliffe Higbee (DDG 123).
