USS Greeneville (SSN 772) incident

USS Greeneville to move to West Loch for munitions off-load

U.S. Pacific Fleet Public Affairs

PEARL HARBOR (Feb. 15, 2001) -- The Navy will dry-dock USS Greeneville in order to thoroughly inspect the ship's condition. As part of these preparations, Greeneville is first being moved to West Loch to off-load munitions. This is standard procedure for any vessel entering a dry dock.

Greeneville is expected to move to dry dock next week. While in dry dock, inspectors plan to inspect the rudder, propeller and the entire hull to determine what repair work needs to be accomplished.

The duration of the submarine's docking will depend on the repairs required.

Because of safety concerns and security restrictions, media will not be able to cover the munitions off-load.
