Huntington Ingalls Industries’ Ingalls Shipbuilding division has been awarded a US$5.1 billion fixed-price incentive, multi-year procurement contract for construction of six Arleigh Burke-class Flight III destroyers for the US 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.

Ingalls has built and delivered 30 Arleigh Burke-class destroyers over the course of 30 years. The shipyard currently has five destroyers under construction, including the first Flight III ship, DDG 125, which started fabrication in May.
