MARMC Helps Keep USS Leyte Gulf on Schedule

Mid-Atlantic Regional Maintenance Center’s (MARMC) Production Department made key emergent repairs to the guided-missile cruiser USS Leyte Gulf (CG 55) which resulted in an on time departure from Naval Station Norfolk, June 9.

MARMC Pipe Shop Zone Manager Bryon Myers received a call June 8, that Leyte Gulf had lost its potable water.

Essentially, a potable water pipe rupture created this casualty, so the ship had no drinking water, showering or cooking water, there was no fresh water available.

Myers immediately notified his team to inspect Leyte Gulf and identify the source of the leak and to project the scope of work for the repair.

After fully identifying the scope of work, the production department team pulled together enough resources not only to get the repair completed, but also not interfere with the ship’s planned departure time the following morning.

With MARMC’s support, Leyte Gulf was able to depart on time.
