Huntington Ingalls Industries’ Newport News Shipbuilding division was awarded a $106 million contract to provide engineering and industrial support on U.S. Navy submarines, special mission submersibles, submarine support facilities and related programs.
If all options are exercised, the total value of the contract will be $564 million.
Work will include engineering, design, configuration management, integrated logistic support, database management, research and development, modernization and industrial support. Work will begin immediately and is expected to continue through September 2019.
Newport News is one of only two U.S. shipyards capable of building nuclear-powered submarines and has completed hundreds of ship repair projects for the U.S. government, ranging from paint repair to complete hull and machinery renovation.
