Fincantieri Subsidiary Begins Navy FFG(X) Frigate Detail Design Work

Detail design work has now kicked off on the FFG(X) guided-missile frigate program after the Navy received no protests over its decision to award the potential 15-year, $5.6B design and construction contract to a Wisconsin-based subsidiary of Fincantieri, USNI News reported Wednesday.

Fincantieri Marinette Marine won the contract in April and will also provide engineering, training equipment, post-delivery availability and crew familiarization support services under the FFG(X) program.

Alan Baribeau, a spokesman for Naval Sea Systems Command, told the publication the Government Accountability Office protest period for the contract award ended Monday, June 1.

“The Navy is moving forward with execution of the contract, and has completed the Post-Award Conference. Detail design of the FFG(X) is commencing,” Baribeau added.

Huntington Ingalls Industries (NYSE: HII), Austal‘s U.S. arm and General Dynamics’ (NYSE: GD) Bath Iron Works subsidiary, which submitted its offer in partnership with Navantia, competed for the FFG(X) program.
