Ingalls Shipbuilding Awarded $697.6M Missile Destroyer Contract

Press Release
Tuesday, September 27, 2011

Huntington Ingalls Industries, Inc. (NYSE:HII) announced that its Ingalls Shipbuilding division was awarded a $697.6 million fixed-price incentive construction contract for a new Arleigh Burke-class (DDG 51) destroyer, DDG 114. It will be the 30th Aegis guided missile destroyer Ingalls has built for the U.S. Navy.

 
"This is an exciting opportunity for us to continue our outstanding quality of work in building DDG 51s," said Bob Merchent, Ingalls' vice president, surface combatants and U.S. Coast Guard program. "Every day our shipbuilders set out to build quality ships safely, and we've accomplished this for more than 20 years in this surface combatant program. We are proud of this legacy and will continue to build and deliver the best surface combatants in the world to the U.S. Navy."
 
Ingalls has delivered 28 DDG 51 ships to the U.S. Navy. The company's 28th ship, William P. Lawrence (DDG 110), was commissioned on June 4 in Mobile, Ala. The ship was the most complete at time of sea trials in the history of the DDG 51 program at Ingalls. Also, lessons learned from previous DDGs allowed Ingalls to deliver William P. Lawrence with a reduction in schedule and man-hours compared to previous ships in the class.
 
In April 2010 Ingalls was awarded a long-lead material contract on DDG 114 and on June 15 was awarded a construction contract to build DDG 113. Today's announcement also included contract amount information on the award of DDG 113, which is $783.5 million.
 
This highly capable, multi-mission ship can conduct a variety of operations, from peacetime presence and crisis management to sea control and power projection, all in support of the United States' military strategy. DDG 114 will be capable of simultaneously fighting air, surface and subsurface battles. The ship contains myriad offensive and defensive weapons designed to support maritime defense needs well into the 21st century.
