PASCAGOULA, Miss. — Huntington Ingalls Industries’ (HII’s) Ingalls Shipbuilding division has received a $27 million cost-plus-award-fee contract from the U.S. Navy for follow yard services in the Navy’s Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer (DDG 51) program, the company announced in an April 16 release.
The contract, which provides liaison and technical support, engineering, design and configuration management, systems engineering, turn-key management and crew indoctrination, includes four option years with a total potential contract value of $181.4 million if all options are exercised.
“This contract highlights our shipyard’s versatility in handling all aspects of shipbuilding for the Navy,” said Ingalls Shipbuilding President Brian Cuccias. “We have a long tradition of building DDG 51-class ships and this contract supports configuration management and engineering design support of the construction contracts. We look forward to continuing this success in providing the most technologically advanced destroyers to the U.S. Navy so the men and women sailing these ships will have the most modern tools necessary to protect our freedom.”
