Northrop Grumman Awarded $191M Contract For USS Enterprise Drydocking

Monday, January 07, 2002
Northrop Grumman Corporation today said that the U.S. Navy has awarded the company a $191 million contract for an Extended Drydock Selected Restricted Availability (EDSRA) on the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise (CVN 65). Northrop Grumman's Newport News sector is the prime contractor for this award.

Work during the EDSRA will include routine dry dock work, tank blasting and coating, hull preservation, propulsion and ship system repairs and limited enhancements to various hull, mechanical and electrical systems.

The work, which will last approximately one year, will take place at Norfolk Naval Shipyard in Portsmouth, Va. Northrop Grumman Newport News is coordinating this availability with Norfolk Naval Shipyard, which is responsible for a portion of the work to be performed.

Enterprise was launched at Northrop Grumman Newport News in 1960 and was the first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier to join the U.S. Navy's fleet. The ship and its battlegroup were most recently deployed in the Middle East as part of Operation Enduring Freedom.

Measuring 1,101 ft., with a flight deck width of 252 ft. and a displacement of 89,600 tons, Enterprise can travel in excess of 30 knots.
