USS Green Bay Hosts ERAT Members
While transiting to Apra Harbor, Guam from Darwin, Australia on the 31st of July, the amphibious transport dock ship, USS Green Bay (LPD 20), welcomed aboard five members of the Engineering Readiness and Assistance Team (ERAT).
These mechanical and electrical experts brought their knowledge and experience into the engineering department while providing and facilitating training and preparations for Green Bay’s future engineering operation certification, light-off assessment (LOA) and continued safe operations of the propulsion and auxiliary plants.
ERAT assisted the ship’s crew with conducting material readiness checks of the ship’s auxiliary, electrical and propulsion systems. They also tested system alarms and equipment shutdown parameters as well as vital safety features within the equipment.
After completing the propulsion system checks, while the plant was not in operation, the team also conducted assessments of the equipment while underway.
