Huntington Ingalls Industries’ Ingalls Shipbuilding division has been awarded a contract modification to exercise the first option year of the existing Littoral Combat Ships (LCS) Planning Yard contract, the company has announced on 24th April. This option has a potential total value of up to $107.9 million for planning yard services in support of in-service Littoral Combat Ships (LCS).
“Our outstanding and experienced Shipyard Planning Yard team is poised to continue the excellent and efficient execution of this important work for our Navy customer,” Ingalls Shipbuilding President Brian Cuccias said.
The planning yard design services contract will continue to provide the LCS program with post-delivery life-cycle support, which includes fleet modernization program planning, design engineering and modelling, logistics support, long-lead-time material support, and preventative and planned maintenance system item development and scheduling. Unique to this planning yard effort is the requirement to manage the scheduling of all planned, continuous and emergent maintenance and associated availabilities.
