PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) - USS Albany (SSN 753) arrived at Norfolk Naval Shipyard (NNSY) Wednesday for its Engineered Overhaul.
According to the Navy, the work will involve modernization and maintenance to USS Albany. That includes removing the shaft and the sonar dome for maintenance. In a first for Norfolk Naval Shipyard, the Los Angeles-class submarine will receive the latest combat systems package currently being developed.
Another first for NNSY is that “USS Albany will be the first to incorporate full Job-Readiness Cells (JRC) and Zone Management from the start of the project,” said Tim Cox, Non-Nuclear assistant project superintendent (APS).
USS Albany was commissioned April 7, 1990.
