PASCAGOULA — Huntington Ingalls Industries has been awarded $601 million for construction of a destroyer, DDG 119, at its shipyard in Pascagoula.
The destroyer is part of a $3.3 billion contract the Pascagoula facility was awarded last June to build five DDG 51 Class ships.
The modification announced Friday also provides $79.4 million in advanced procurement funding for the fiscal 2016-17 ships. One ship will be built in Pascagoula each fiscal year from 2013 to 2017.
DDG 119 will be the second produced in the five-ship package.
The Arleigh Burke-class ships are 510 feet long and carry a 276-person crew. The destroyers are equipped with the Aegis weapons systems.
They are built by Ingalls and at General Dynamics’ Bath Iron Works in Bath, Maine. Bath is building four destroyers.
