YRR is defined as a non-self-propelled radiological repair barge used to support nuclear plant overhauls. It is designed to provide a facility for the decontamination of, or subsequent repairs to installed machinery and equipment aboard nuclear ships and submarines that have been exposed to radioactive material as a result of operation of their installed nuclear propulsion plant.
YR, YRDH, YRDM and YFN type craft have in the past been modified to serve this purpose.
(For use in fueling, refueling and repair of nuclear Submarines.)
