HII to overhaul USS John C Stennis

16th August 2018 - 16:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Huntington Ingalls Industries has received an advance planning contract for the refuelling and complex overhaul (RCOH) of the US Navy's nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS John C Stennis.

The contract, which has a base value of $187.5 million and is initially funded for one year, includes engineering, design, material procurement and fabrication, documentation, resource forecasting and pre-overhaul inspections. 

Future modifications could extend the period of performance to 30 months and increase the contract value if additional options are exercised. 

USS John C Stennis was delivered to the navy in 1995. It will be the seventh Nimitz-class carrier to undergo an RCOH, representing 35% of all maintenance and modernisation completed during its 50-year service life.

Planning is set to begin in August 2018 and the RCOH is scheduled to begin in January 2021.
