Huntington Ingalls Industries‘ Newport News Shipbuilding division has secured a $36.4 million contract from the U.S. Navy to support maintenance and modernization work on the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower.
NNS will aid nuclear ship alterations and propulsion plant maintenance during the fiscal 2017 planned incremental availability of USS Dwight Eisenhower at the Norfolk Naval Shipyard, the Defense Department said Friday.
Contract work will occur in Portsmouth and Newport News, Virginia through March 2018.
The Navy will obligate $36.2 million in fiscal 2017 operations and maintenance and “other” procurement funds at the time of award.
