Building the Shipyards the Nation Needs

The Navy's four public shipyards need substantial recapitalization and reconfiguration in order to improve the timely return of ships and submarines back to the fleet following maintenance and modernization, which in turn supports the combat readiness of the Navy the nation needs.

Naval Sea Systems Command's Shipyard Infrastructure Optimization Program (SIOP) is a comprehensive, 20-year, $21-billion effort to modernize infrastructure at the four naval shipyards through:

  • Performing critical dry dock repairs.
  • Restoring and optimally placing shipyard facilities.
  • Replacing aging and deteriorating capital equipment.
