Huntington Ingalls Industries (NYSE: HII) has won a potential six-year, $931.7M contract from the U.S. Navy to provide planning yard services for in-service Littoral Combat Ships.
HII said Wednesday its Ingalls Shipbuilding division will support the vessels’ post-delivery life cycle support and manage all maintenance and associated availability schedules.
Ingalls and HII’s technical solutions business will also provide waterfront support to LCS homeports, the company added.
A team of designers, program managers, planners, subject matter experts, engineers and logisticians will perform the majority of contract work in Pascagoula, Miss., and Hampton, Va.
Brian Cuccias, president of Ingalls Shipbuilding, said the business will apply its 35-year planning yard and program management experience to help the Navy ensure that LCS post-delivery efforts meet the service branch’s requirements and missions.
