HII Lands $175M US Navy Aircraft Carrier Sustainment Contract
The Naval Sea Systems Command has awarded Huntington Ingalls Industries’ technical solutions division a potential five-year, $175 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to fulfill maintenance, training and planning requirements for Navy aircraft carriers.
The IDIQ calls for engineering services, maintenance and operator training, in addition to technical and repair services to support the overhaul, modernization and repair of the naval aircraft carriers’ shipboard elevators, cargo-handling equipment and associated systems.
Contract work will be carried out in Norfolk, Virginia; San Diego, California; Bremerton and Everett, Washington; Japan; and other to-be-determined fleet concentration areas, HII said.
In a statement, Garry Schwartz, president of the technical solution division’s defense and federal solutions business group, welcomed the opportunity to support the readiness of the aircraft carriers.
Schwartz, a member of the Potomac Officers Club, also looks forward to extending HII’s decades-long partnership with the Navy through the award.
The aircraft carrier sustainment contract adds to HII’s previous engagements with the service branch.
Last year, the Navy tapped HII to provide continued services in support of landing helicopter assault 9 amphibious assault ships. The award, which was a modification to an existing LHA 9 contract, required the shipbuilding company to provide long-lead-time material and advanced procurement activities.
Headquartered in Newport News, Virginia, HII has been providing military shipbuilding services for over a century. HII is one of the country’s leading shipbuilding companies, having built the most ships in more ship classes than any other U.S. naval shipbuilder.
