Huntington Ingalls wins $213.9M Navy contract
Newport News-based military shipbuilder to perform engineering services
The U.S. Navy awarded Newport News-based Huntington Ingalls Industries a $213.9 million follow-on contract to perform engineering services for San Antonio-class amphibious transport docks, the U.S. Department of Defense announced Friday.
Under the contract, HII’s Ingalls Shipbuilding division in Pascagoula, Mississippi, will help the Navy manage engineering changes, integrate systems and provide shipboard technology training.
The San Antonio class can accommodate up to 800 personnel for amphibious assault for special operations purposes.
HII is the nation’s largest military shipbuilding company, employing more than 42,000 people worldwide. The DOD also announced last week the company landed a $2.99 billion Navy contract to refuel and overhaul USS John C. Stennis supercarrier.
