Theodore Roosevelt to Deploy Today

US Navy’s aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt, which was supposed to deploy on Monday, is expected to embark on its journey today.

The vessel was supposed to depart Norfolk Naval Station when it got tied up because of an engineering issue. According to PilotOnline, the vessel’s seawater intake condenser was clogged by aquatic invertebrates, specifically Bryozoa.

Having resolved the problem, the vessel will now join the rest of the Carrier Strike Group which deployed for an eight month operation in the Mediterranean, Middle East and Pacific on Monday.

Following the conclusion of this operation, USS Theodore Roosevelt will sail to its new homeport in San Diego, California.
