Huntington Ingalls Industries (NYSE: HII) has received a $224 million contract modification to refuel and update the U.S. Navy’s USS George Washington aircraft carrier.

The company will also deliver pumps, breakers, valves and steel for the structural fabrication of the ship, Huntington Ingalls said Wednesday.

Chris Miner, vice president for in-service aircraft carrier programs at the company’s Newport News Shipbuilding division, said the company will work to help the Navy plan the refueling and overhaul work in order to keep the carrier operational for another 25 years.

Huntington Ingalls will perform work at the company’s Newport News Shipbuilding division through February 2016.

The material requirements are scheduled to complete by January 2020, the Defense Department said.

Newport News previously completed modernization work on four Nimitz-class ships and is currently working on the USS Abraham Lincoln.
