Ingalls awarded LX(R) design work

5th July 2016 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) has been selected to perform the majority of the contract design work for the US Navy's amphibious warfare ship replacement LX(R) programme, the company announced on 1 July.

The LX(R) will replace the navy’s Harpers Ferry- and Whidbey Island-class dock landing ships. The design will use the same hull as the San Antonio-class vessels. 

Brian Cuccias, president, Ingalls Shipbuilding, said: ‘With a hot production line, skilled workers, a strong supplier base and deep experience building San Antonio-class LPD amphibious warships, Ingalls stands ready to close the gap between LPD 28 and LX(R), the next generation amphibious warships the navy-marine corps team needs today.’
