Huntington Ingalls Industries' (HII) Technical Solutions division was awarded a contract last week to provide maintenance, training and planning support for U.S. Navy aircraft carriers. The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract includes a five-year ordering term, with a total potential value of $175 million.

"We are very pleased the U.S. Navy has entrusted us to support the readiness of one of our nation's most important power projection platforms," said Garry Schwartz, president of Technical Solutions' Defense and Federal Solutions business group. "For nearly four decades, we've partnered with the Navy on this critical program, and we look forward to continuing to advance our nation's fleet sustainment for years to come."

HII will provide engineering services, maintenance and operator training as well as technical and repair services in support of maintenance and planning for the overhaul, modernization and repair of shipboard elevators, cargo-handling equipment and associated systems installed within U.S. Navy aircraft carriers.

The work, contracted by Naval Sea Systems Command, will be performed onboard U.S. naval aircraft carriers in Norfolk, Va.; San Diego, Calif.; Bremerton and Everett, Wash.; Japan, and other fleet concentration areas to be determined.
