Sustaining US Navy Destroyer EffectivenessCommissioned in 2005, the USS Nitze is the US Navy’s 44th Arleigh Burke ship.

Alongside the vessel, BAE Systems has begun similar works for the USS Lassen (DDG 88) and USS Mustin (DDG 89) at its Florida and San Diego shipyards.

“The depot maintenance periods are necessarily complex and critical to maintain the combat effectiveness of DDGs,” BAE Systems Norfolk Ship Repair Vice ргeѕіdeпt and General Manager David Thomas Jr. stated.

“BAE Systems Norfolk looks forward to conducting the assigned DMP work that will enable the USS Nitze to move into its next phase of fleet readiness.”
