U.S. Navy awards Ingalls $2.4 billion contract for construction of LHA 9

Ingalls Shipbuilding has been awarded a $2.4 billion U.S. Navy fix-priced incentive contract for the detail design and construction of amphibious assault ship LHA 9.

The award includes two options, that if exercised, would bring the cumulative value of the contract to $3.2 billion.

Ingalls was awarded the original long-lead-time material contract for the fourth ship in the America class on April 30th, 2020.

Construction on LHA 9 is scheduled to begin this coming December.
