USS Hopper Begins Major Maintenance Period at Pearl Harbor 
From Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard Public Affairs 
PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii - USS Hopper (DDG 70) entered dry dock at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility (PHNSY & IMF) for a major maintenance period, July 18.

Personnel from PHNSY & IMF, a Naval Sea Systems Command field activity, are overseeing and supervising the project. NAVSEA's four public shipyards play a major role in maintaining America's fleet and provide wartime surge capability to keep the nation's ships ready for combat.

"We have a very robust, integrated schedule and testing plan to de-conflict work for all of the various maintenance and modernization activities," said Lt. Cmdr. Mitch Perrett, Hopper DSRA project officer. "The effort put forth into getting this right will really pay off in execution.

The Docking Selected Restricted Availability (DSRA) encompasses more than $25 million of work, making it one of largest work packages conducted by the command on an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer.

NAVSEA continuously improves its maintenance and modernization processes to ensure capability is delivered in a cost-effective way.

"We're looking forward to a safe, high-quality availability to keep USS Hopper fit to fight, said Perrett."

PHNSY & IMF is a full-service naval shipyard and regional maintenance center for the Navy's surface ships and submarines. It is the largest industrial employer in the state of Hawaii with a combined civilian and military workforce of about 4,850 and an economic impact of $925 million.
