USS Wayne E. Meyer was Successfully Undocked

Earlier this month, Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Wayne E. Meyer was successfully undocked by Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility, thanks to the shipyard and ship crew members, it was announced.

Wayne E. Meyer, which is home-ported in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, will finish the final stages of its DSRA pier-side, according to the Navy.

“I could not be more proud of the fantastic teamwork executed by the shipyard, the crew and our partners at Vigor Marine,” said Capt. Greg Burton, PHNSY & IMF Commanding Officer. “I’m looking forward to seeing the team finish the availability strong and get Wayne E. Meyer back to the fleet ready for tasking.”

This is the first time PHNSY & IMF has partnered with West Coast-based Vigor Marine as the prime contractor.

“Vigor has been able to successfully execute Wayne E. Meyer’s availability through early planning, constant communication, and teamwork, partnering with our government project management team as well as successful management of the same subcontractors who've worked at PHNSY & IMF for many years," said Tom Freeman, deputy project manager for Vigor.
