GE Marine Engines' Lynn, Mass. Gear Plant recently received the U.S. Navy's Theater Surface Combatant Team Award for Excellence for the prompt effort performed on the main reduction gear of the USS Decatur DDG 73 destroyer.

The award was presented to GE in July by U.S. Navy Capt. Fred Parker, AEGIS Shipbuilding program manager.

According to the U.S. Navy citation, signed by Rear Admiral William W. Cobb, Jr., program executive officer for Theater Surface Combatants, "The Main Reduction Gear Team demonstrated exceptional technical expertise, sincere dedication, and a strong commitment to the Fleet in repairing the impaired port main reduction gear aboard USS Decatur (DDG 73)."

"Showing extraordinary initiative and responsiveness, team members immediately took action to identify the problem, deploy the necessary resources, and accomplish repairs in a timely and professional manner. Through their tenacity and technical acumen, they effectively repaired the damaged bull gear, replaced the 2B lower second reduction pinion, and completed all operational testing in minimal time to return the ship to operational status."
