NAVSEA Garners Awards

Friday, May 10, 2002
Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) emerged as a major force in environmental stewardship judging by its impressive showing during a recent series of environmental awards. NAVSEA and its various activities were very well represented on April 30 and May 1 at a series of environmental awards presentation ceremonies on behalf of the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO), the Secretary of the Navy (SECNAV) and the Department of Defense (OSD). One of NAVSEA's acquisition programs, the Lewis and Clark T-AKE ship program, captured a "grand slam" of sorts winning awards at all levels, two from the CNO, two from SECNAV and one from OSD. The Norfolk Naval Shipyard also won a SECNAV award.

NAVSEA's shipyards led the way with six awards, with three for the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility, two for Norfolk Naval Shipyard and one for the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard. NAVSEA's research facilities were represented with awards for the Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane and the Naval Undersea Warfare Center Newport.
