Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Colleen Hanabusa (HI-01), a member of the House Armed Services Committee, announced on Monday that Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard (PHNSY) is receiving more than $26 million to start work on two of its military construction projects. 

PHNSY has been awarded $18,608,004 for its Drydock Waterfront Facility and $7,404,262 to construct a Low Pressure Air (LPA) Satellite Compressor Plant.

“Through previous work on the National Defense Authorization Act, I am pleased we were able to secure funding for these two very important military construction projects here in Hawaii,” said Hanabusa. “Especially in a time of fiscal uncertainty, it is reassuring to see these projects move forward and create much needed local jobs. Infrastructure improvements to the drydocks – as well as the LPA Satellite Compressor Plant, which is used for vital shipyard functions such as ventilation, sandblasting, and painting – will ensure that PHNSY continues to be a world-class shipyard with the capabilities to repair our nation’s vessels as we rebalance to Asia-Pacific.”
