NNS to Provide Maintenance Services on U.S. Navy's Two Nuclear Reactor Prototypes

Huntington Ingalls Industries via its Newport News Shipbuilding division has assumed responsibility for maintenance services at the Kenneth A. Kesselring Site in West Milton, N.Y.

NNS was awarded the contract in September 2011 by Bechtel Marine Propulsion Corp. (BMPC) to provide maintenance services on the two nuclear reactor prototypes at the Kesselring site, a research and development facility that supports the U.S. Navy’s Nuclear Propulsion Program. A NNS management team relocated to Kesselring in October to begin the transition period.

We are excited to welcome our Kesselring team to Newport News Shipbuilding,” said Matt Mulherin, president of Newport News Shipbuilding. “We are fortunate to be gaining a wealth of talent and knowledge that will be of great benefit to both sites as we continue to explore ways to leverage our skills and capabilities in support of the Navy’s nuclear propulsion program.”

NNS successfully competed for the cost-plus-fixed-fee, level-of-effort contract that contains a five-year base period valued at $195 million with a five-year option valued at $395 million.

The transition so far has been a very positive experience,” said Kent Williams, NNS’ director of nuclear engineering and Kesselring site director. “We have been received with open arms and look forward to working together to provide BMPC with the highest-quality maintenance services for its Kesselring site.

Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) designs, builds and maintains nuclear and non-nuclear ships for the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard and provides after-market services for military ships around the globe. For more than a century, HII has built more ships in more ship classes than any other U.S. naval shipbuilder. Employing nearly 38,000 in Virginia, Mississippi, Louisiana and California, its primary business divisions are Newport News Shipbuilding and Ingalls Shipbuilding.
