PNSY Prepares USS Annapolis for Maintenance

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.
