Newport News Industrial Corporation (NNI) is a subsidiary of Huntington Ingalls Industries and resides within its Newport News Shipbuilding (NNS) division. We are a “Premier Fabricator,” that has been a solution provider to the nuclear and commercial power industries for the past 50 years. Utilizing our modular construction experience, we have performed many complex heavy metal fabrication projects which have earned us recognition by Westinghouse, Southern Company and others. We currently support Plants Vogtle and VC Summer with their dry shield panels, the first two new nuclear construction projects in the last 30 years. NNI also provides Boiler Water Circulating Pump repairs/rebuilds for the fossil industry as well as valve repairs/testing for DOD and the commercial market. With extensive welding engineering and welding capabilities, we support the DOD, DOE and the commercial industries working with carbon steel, stainless, stellite, duplex, HY-80 and HSLA-100 materials. All of this is supported by a robust QA/QC program, various code/stamps, and NQA-1 compliance.

Over 50 years of experience: Since 1965, incorporated as Nuclear Engineering and Construction Company, NNI has gained valuable experience deriving from Its original mission to support the design and construction of commercial nuclear power plants. Due to Nuclear Engineering & Construction Company being a leader in its field it had to expand over time to keep up with demand. It’s capabilities grew to include maintenance, repair and modification services.

In 1973, the name was changed to Newport News Industrial Corporation to better reflect the company’s mission and growth into fossil power plants and other industrial facilities.

Present: Today, NNI has approximately 500 employees. NNI is a fabricator of highly engineered components; both boiler and pressure vessel (ASME Section VIII) and nuclear (ASME Section III). Our welding qualifications and execution are unparalleled. Our attention to detail, experience in interpreting codes and specifications and cost/schedule controls insures success. NNI is the engineer’s fabricator; offering design-for-production input to simplify shop operations …. Getting better products completed faster.
