The Newport News Shipbuilding division of Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) has secured a contract from the U.S. Navy for nuclear propulsion and complex modernization work on the aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) as part of its planned incremental availability.
The $52 million contract covers planning, material procurement, prefabrication, manpower, support services, design integration, engineering and management support and technical data. Work will be performed at Norfolk Naval Shipyard and is expected to be completed by September 2017.
USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75), named after the 33rd U.S. president, is the eighth Nimitz-class aircraft carrier. The ship was launched in September 1996 by Newport News and is homeported at Naval Station Norfolk, Va.
