NORFOLK, Va. - On Feb. 15 Norfolk Naval Shipyard (NNSY) broke ground to welcome a renewed period of naval shore construction and celebrate multiple projects which will renovate and modernize its historic Dry Dock 8 and adjacent berths. The $300 million-plus in renovation projects will deliver critical infrastructure upgrades that will enable NNSY to repair and modernize our Navy’s warships, supporting NNSY’s ability to serve the Navy decades into the future by accommodating the Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78) carrier class. This multi-contract, multi-year renovation is NNSY’s biggest project yet as part of Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command’s Shipyard Infrastructure Optimization Program (SIOP).
