Huntington Ingalls Wins $2.6 Bln RCOH Contract For USS Abraham Lincoln

Huntington Ingalls Industries, Inc. (HII: Quote) said Friday that it was awarded a $2.6 billion cost-plus-incentive-fee contract for the refueling and complex overhaul of the nuclear-powered Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln.

The work will be performed at the company's Newport News Shipbuilding, or NSS, division.

The ship arrived at NNS Thursday using planning contract funding. Lincoln was originally scheduled to arrive at NNS on February 14 but was among the projects delayed due to uncertainties surrounding the defense budget and funding of the work.

The U.S. President signed legislation Tuesday enabling the Navy and NNS to move the Lincoln to the shipyard to begin the refueling and complex overhaul, the company noted.

The refueling and complex overhaul represents 35% of all maintenance and modernization in an aircraft carrier's 50-year service life. Lincoln's refueling and complex overhaul will include the refueling of the ship's reactors, as well as extensive modernization work to more than 2,300 compartments, 600 tanks and hundreds of systems. In addition, major upgrades will be made to the flight deck, catapults, combat systems and the island.

Work is expected to begin immediately and continue through November 2016.
