Northrop Grumman Tapped for Carrier Work

Friday, September 28, 2007
Northrop Grumman Corporation won two contracts from the U.S. Navy for maintenance and modernization work on aircraft carriers based in San Diego and Yokosuka, Japan. The company's Newport News sector is the prime contractor for the work. Northrop Grumman, the nation's sole designer, builder and refueler of nuclear-powered aircraft carriers, was awarded a one-year contract with four one-year options to manage the continuous maintenance of the USS Nimitz, USS Ronald Reagan and other nuclear aircraft carriers at North Island in San Diego. The potential value of the contract is more than $120 million and will include planning, engineering, maintenance and modernization work. The Navy has initially awarded Northrop Grumman $4.9 million for work associated with a maintenance availability for USS Nimitz in October 2007.

Northrop Grumman Newport News was also awarded a $1.8 million contract to begin preparations for the USS George Washington's arrival to Japan in June 2008. This contract is in support of the U.S. Navy's Ship Repair Facility and Regional Maintenance Center in Yokosuka, Japan. Northrop Grumman will continue its aircraft carrier support contract in Japan with Sumitomo Heavy Industries. These contracts are part of an anticipated multi-year effort to support nuclear aircraft carriers in Japan.

"We are pleased to be expanding our fleet support operations in Japan," said Irwin F. Edenzon, vice president of technology development and fleet support for Northrop Grumman Newport News. "This new opportunity, along with our continued presence in San Diego, further demonstrates our ability to provide fleet maintenance support wherever it's needed in the world."
