Contract awarded for rebuild of Katrina-damaged shipyard

A subsidiary of Tutor Perini has won a US$68m project to reconstruct shipbuilding facilities that were damaged by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

Roy Anderson Corp has been appointed by Huntington Ingalls Incorporated for the East Bank Revitalization project in Pascagoula, Mississippi. The project is part of Huntington Ingalls’ plans to reactivate its Pascagoula River shipbuilding facilities.

The reactivation will restore the facility’s ability to support Ingalls’ current ship construction and modernization programs as well as help the company better prepare for future work, including next-generation amphibious assault ships and surface combatants.

The primary component of the project includes the addition of large, covered construction areas for construction of ship assemblies and components as well as the restoration of an outfitting pier.

Work is expected to begin in the next 30 days with substantial completion anticipated in the fall of 2019.
