HII redelivers USS Abraham Lincoln
Huntington Ingalls Industries has redelivered the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) to the US Navy, the company announced on 12 May.
The vessel was redelivered after successful sea trials that tested ship systems following its refuelling and complex overhaul (RCOH) at the company’s Newport News Shipbuilding division.
Under the sea trials, the carrier’s systems and operations at sea, including high-speed operations, were tested. The trials team put the ship through a series of tests designed to prove system performance and demonstrate all the carrier’s capabilities at sea.
The once in ships' lifetime RCOH process involves upgrades to nearly every space and system on the ship. Tanks, the hull, shafting, propellers, rudders, piping, ventilation, electrical, combat and aviation support systems were repaired, upgraded and modernised. Work also included defueling and refuelling the ship’s two nuclear reactors and repairs and upgrades to the propulsion plant.
Lincoln is the fifth Nimitz-class carrier to undergo an RCOH. The next carrier in line for its RCOH is USS George Washington (CVN 73).
