PEARL HARBOR (NNS) -- Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard workers undocked USS Bremerton (SSN 698) as scheduled Jan. 21 after two months of intensive work in dry dock.

Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard is one of Naval Sea System Command's four public shipyards, responsible for maintaining and modernizing the fleet to meet emerging threats and shifting Navy priorities.

"It was a challenge to have the holiday break right in the middle of the project-and then get back into full speed, but the shipyard did it," said Project Superintendent Miles Kotoshirodo, head of the team executing the Bremerton Dry-docking Selected Restricted Availability (DSRA).

"The Bremerton project team, which includes supporting shops and codes in the shipyard, and Bremerton's crew under the leadership of commanding officer Cmdr. Howard Warner, helped maintain the shipyard's good track record of completing key events for DSRAs on or ahead of schedule," said Kotoshirodo.

Kotoshirodo attributed the achievement to integrated teamwork and perseverance by project team members. "They had a lot of determination to recover from any setbacks," he said. "No single individual was responsible for this success - it was an outstanding job by everyone all across the board."

Kotoshirodo acknowledged the noteworthy efforts of the crew of the submarine. "Bremerton's Sailors definitely took care of their end of the work as well," he said.
