Portsmouth Naval Shipyard (PNSY) workers safely drydocked USS Annapolis (SSN 760) June 15 for planned maintenance work and several system upgrades.
Annapolis arrived at PNSY April 25, and the dry-docking of the submarine is part of a greater engineering overhaul scheduled to last 23 months.
More than a year prior to Annapolis’ arrival, the shipyard assembled a project planning team comprised of individuals from engineering and production departments. The team developed a detailed plan for this maintenance availability to ensure a successful overhaul for Annapolis and the shipyard.
Portsmouth Naval Shipyard is the Navy’s center of excellence for attack submarine overhaul, repair and modernization. As a field activity of NAVSEA, PNSY is committed to maximizing the material readiness of the fleet by continuing to safely deliver first-time quality work, on time and on budget.
