MPR Federal Services has recently been awarded a two-year contract by Newport News Shipbuilding to design, manufacture, and deliver eight ventilation platforms to support the decommissioning of USS ENTERPRISE (CVN 65).
Newport News Shipbuilding is a division of Huntington Ingalls Industries.
“The USS ENTERPRISE is the first US nuclear powered aircraft carrier to be decommissioned. MPR Associates is proud to participate in this project of National significance,” stated Ryan Downs, MPR’s acting Vice President of MPR Federal Services.
The highly decorated USS ENTERPRISE will be a first of its kind decommissioning. The ship is scheduled to begin decommissioning at the end of this year, and will pave the way for future nuclear aircraft carrier decommissionings.
