USN completes repairs on carrier Truman

13 November 2019

The US Navy (USN) has completed repairs on aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) and the service is now preparing the ship and its air wing to resume operations at sea, USN officials said on 12 November.

Scheduled to deploy in September, the carrier has been sidelined since August, when the USN identified an emergent maintenance requirement for an electrical issue that caused damage aboard the ship.

The USN replaced damaged components and completed tests to ensure no further issues will arise, the service said.

The service conducted an engineering analysis, inspected several other aircraft carriers, and concluded that the problem was a localised issue and not a class-wide concern.
