Huntington Ingalls Industries’ Newport News Shipbuilding division has received a contract modification to continue planning for the refuelling and complex overhaul (RCOH) of the US Navy aircraft carrier USS John C Stennis.

The $290 million contract funds the second and third years of planning, long-lead-time material procurement, shop fabrication, shipboard inspections and facilities readiness for the RCOH.

Newport News will also perform some shipboard work as part of the planning contract.

Stennis will be the seventh Nimitz-class carrier to undergo a major life-cycle overhaul at Newport News. The RCOH will recapitalise the carrier to ensure it can continue supporting navy operations for another 25 years.
