HII gets deal for DDG 51-class follow yard services
Huntington Ingalls Industries’ Ingalls Shipbuilding division has received a $27 million cost-plus-award fee contract from the US Navy for follow yard services in the navy’s USS Arleigh Burke (DDG 51) program.
The contract, which provides liaison and technical support, engineering, design and configuration management, systems engineering, turn-key management and crew indoctrination, includes four option years with a total potential contract value of $181.4 million if all options are exercised.
Ingalls has delivered 30 Arleigh Burke-class destroyers to the US Navy. Destroyers currently under construction at Ingalls include Paul Ignatius (DDG 117), Delbert D. Black (DDG 119) Frank E. Petersen Jr. (DDG 121) and Lenah H. Sutcliffe Higbee (DDG 123).
Arleigh Burke-class destroyers are highly capable, multi-mission ships and can conduct a variety of operations, from peacetime presence and crisis management to sea control and power projection, all in support of the United States’ military strategy.
The guided missile destroyers are capable of simultaneously fighting air, surface and subsurface battles.
