USS Michigan Completed Early

USS Michigan (SSGN 727) undocked in late October, five days early, at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility (PSNS & IMF).

Michigan was at PSNS & IMF for a planned five-month major maintenance period. While Michigan’s maintenance availability was scheduled in advance, the full extent of the necessary work isn’t always known until the ship is drydocked.

The Trident maintenance plan objectives include all the maintenance to be performed to allow the ship to operate safely and unrestricted during prescribed operating cycles, operating intervals, and for its prescribed service life.

Execution of the maintenance plan ensures that the ship operates safely and unrestricted while at sea and, maximizing their operational availability.

PSNS & IMF, a Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) field activity, is one of four public shipyards that play a major role in maintaining America’s fleet and providing wartime surge capability to keep the nation’s ships ready for combat. Customer service is important in every business. For NAVSEA, serving our customers in the Fleet is our top priority.
