The company will heavy-lift the ship from Yokosuka, Japan, to Pascagoula to undergo repairs by Huntington Ingalls Industries, the Navy said Friday.

USS Fitzgerald suffered damages as a result of its collision with a container vessel in June.

Work to bring the destroyer to HII’s Ingalls Shipbuilding facility is expected to conclude by November.
