HII Secures $1.5B Contract Modification to Develop LPD 31
The U.S. Navy has awarded Ingalls Shipbuilding, a division of Huntington Ingalls Industries, a $1.5B contract modification for the procurement of the detail design and construction of landing platform dock 31.
Upon completion, the LPD 31 will be the 15th San Antonio-class ship and second Flight II LPD delivered to the Navy. Ingalls Shipbuilding President Brian Cuccias said work for the contract will build on the company’s Navy partnership, which involves the previous delivery of 11 San Antonio-class ships and the ongoing construction of three more ships, HII said.
Ships developed under the San Antonio class support a Marine Air Ground Task Force across the spectrum of operations.
The bulk of the contract work will be performed in Pascagoula, Mississippi, through February 2027. Over 1.5K shipbuilders will work on the LPD.
About $532.1M in fiscal 2019 and 2020 Navy funds will be obligated at the time of award.
The Naval Sea Systems Command in Washington, D.C., is the contracting activity.
