USS Fitzgerald

Huntington Ingalls has won $63 million modification contract for the execution of USS Fitzgerald (DDG 62) emergent repair and restoration.  

This effort shall provide for the initial collision ripout phase of an availability which will include a combination of maintenance, modernization, and collision repair of USS Fitzgerald (DDG 62), the US department of defense said in a statement last Friday.

Work will be performed in Pascagoula, Mississippi, and is expected to be completed by September 2018.

Seven sailors died in June when the USS Fitzgerald and a Phillipine container ship collided southwest of the Japanese city of Yokosuka.

Huntington Ingalls had won a $29.4 million contract for initial planning of USS Fitzgerald (DDG 62) emergent repair and restoration in September this year.

This initial planning and preparation phase of availability will include a combination of restoration and modernization of USS Fitzgerald. USS Fitzgerald is planned to arrive at Ingalls Shipbuilding in December 2017 via heavy lift ship.
