In December, Ingalls Shipbuilding announced it was awarded a $1.46 billion, fixed price incentive contract for the detail design and construction of the amphibious transport dock Fort Lauderdale (LPD 28).


Ingalls has built and delivered 10 ships in the San Antonio class of amphibious warships. The 11th, Portland (LPD 27), which launched last year, is scheduled for sea trials in mid-2017.


“This contract demonstrates the confidence the Navy has in our shipbuilders’ performance in this program,” said Ingalls Shipbuilding President Brian Cuccias. “Building LPD 28 allows the entire LPD industrial base to maintain a hot production line so that our sailors and Marines receive quality amphibious warships as efficiently and affordably as possible.”
