Ingalls awarded $5.1 billion contract

Ingalls Shipbuilding in Pascagoula has been awarded a $5.1 billion contract for construction of six Arleigh Burke class flight III destroyers for the U.S Navy.

The contract includes options for engineering and post-delivery efforts which, if exercised, would bring the cumulative value of the contract to approximately $5.25 billion.

Over the course of 30 years, Ingalls has built and delivered 30 Arleigh-Burke class destroyers.

The shipyard currently has five DDGs under construction including the first flight III ship, DDG 125, which started fabrication in May.
