Skirting the longstanding backlog of work at public shipyards, the Navy has tapped Huntington Ingalls to overhaul the attack submarine USS Boise. The initial $59.7 million contract could ultimately rise to $385 million if all options are exercised.
The Los Angeles-class fast-attack submarine USS Helena will be upgraded under a $65 million-plus contract with Huntington Ingalls. It's the second overhaul for the Helena; previous work was done in 2009 in San Diego.
Cost constraints and crackdowns on sulfur pollution and other emissions are forcing major changes in shipping propulsion. Next month's Power & Propulsion Alternatives for Ships conference, organized by the Royal Institution of Naval Architects, will focus on alternative fuel options and other solutions.
New research vessels will set out on missions to fill many of the blank spots in our understanding of the oceans. Among several notable vessels now being designed and built are polar explorers from the UK and China.
In a world first, an autonomous vessel has assisted in a seabed survey for a cable route. ASV Global and TerraSond carried out the 760-mile survey in the Bering Sea using a C-Worker 5 autonomous surface vehicle that required minimal human guidance.
A keel authentication ceremony marked the official beginning of work on another of the Navy's San Antonio-class amphibious dock ships. The future USS Fort Lauderdale is being built by Huntington Ingalls at its Mississippi facility.
