Photo of the day USS Maryland prepares for deployment

This U.S. Navy photo from March 15 shows the Ohio-class ballistic-missile submarine USS Maryland (SSBN 738) preparing to get underway for routine operations from Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, Georgia.

USS Maryland recently completed its engineered refueling overhaul (ERO) at the Norfolk Naval Shipyard.

EROs are complex, major shipyard availabilities that extend a submarine’s service life.

In addition to being refueled, nearly all of the ship’s systems were overhauled or modernized. Modernization work included replacement of distilling plants with a reverse osmosis unit, installation of an upgraded 500 kilowatt motor generator, electric power plant work, and LAN upgrades.

Maryland is the 13th of 18 operational Ohio-class ballistic missile submarines and was commissioned in 1992. The submarine is homeported in Kings Bay, Georgia.
