HII Shipbuilding Division Installs Caisson at Joint Manufacturing Assembly Facility - top government contractors - best government contracting eventHuntington Ingalls Industries‘ Newport News Shipbuilding division has installed a more than 80-foot caisson fixture inside the Joint Manufacturing Assembly Facility located in Virginia.

The 400-metric-ton structure is scheduled to reach full operational status later this year to support the construction of Virginia-class submarine Utah‘s bow module, HII said Thursday.

HII opened JMAF last year to serve as a venue for Newport News Shipbuilding’s production work on submarines and aircraft carriers.

The company produced a time-lapse video that illustrates the mounting process.
