The NORFOLK NAVAL SHIPYARD in Portsmouth, Virginia, is one of the largest shipyards in the world specializing in repairing, overhauling and modernizing ships and submarines. It's the oldest and largest industrial facility that belongs to the U.S. Navy, and it's also the most multifaceted.



While NNSY can dry-dock, overhaul and repair any ship in the U.S. fleet, it can also perform any technical, fabrication, manufacturing and engineering work your organization might need accomplished. The shipyard's planners and shops are linked by state-of-the-art computer systems to permit computer-aided design (CAD) work, and automated information systems to provide quality services on time and within budget. In fact, NNSY is known for tackling jobs never before performed, and applying unique planning methods and work procedures through modern process improvements.



NNSY's skilled employees are trained in three dozen trades - trades which have built, and continue to build, legends for the Navy. Now, the shipyard can help build legends for you, too.
