HII Awarded $187M to Continue Navy Supercarrier Refueling, Modernization Planning Work

Huntington Ingalls Industries (NYSE: HII) has been awarded a six-month, $187.1M contract modification to continue  preparations for the refueling and complex overhaul of a U.S. Navy nuclear-powered supercarrier.

The service branch extended the period of performance under a previously awarded contract for advance planning efforts for the USS John C. Stennis modernization project, the Department of Defense said Wednesday.

HII will procure long-lead time materials material, perform pre-overhaul inspections and tests, create a technical document and drawing, estimate costs and allocate resources.

Work under the modification is scheduled to conclude by January 2021.

The company initially received a $187.6M contract in August 2018 for advance CVN 74 RCOH planning and engineering services.

The Pentagon designated HII as the building yard contractor for the Navy's CVN-68 class, reactor plant planning and lead design refueling yards and the only company that can help the branch refuel and upgrade nuclear powered aircraft carriers.
