US Navy Completes Engineered Refueling Overhaul for Ohio-class SSBN USS Maryland

Norfolk Naval Shipyard successfully completed USS Maryland’s (SSBN 738) engineered refueling overhaul (ERO) Feb. 24. EROs are complex, major shipyard availabilities that extend a submarine’s service life. In addition to being refueled, nearly all of ships systems were overhauled or modernized. Modernization work included replacement of distilling plants with a reverse osmosis unit, installation of an upgraded 500 kilowatt motor generator, electric power plant work, and LAN upgrades.
