The American company Huntington Ingalls Industries has announced that its shipbuilding division Newport News has completed the deactivation of the aircraft carrier USS "Enterprise" (CVN 65), reports "korabli.eu" with reference to the press service of the company


Written off completely. USS "Enterprise" aircraft carrier deactivated


As part of the complex process that was launched in 2013, more than 1000 shipbuilders unloaded eight nuclear reactors of an aircraft carrier, deactivated its propulsion systems, and also prepared the hull for the last tow.

The shipyard’s deactivation works on the aircraft carrier were completed back in December last year, although the certification of documents was completed recently.

It is noted that the aircraft carrier will still be located in Newport News, where it will be prepared for storage in the Hampton Rhodes area (at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay) until the US Navy determines the disposal plan.

Recall that the aircraft carrier was commissioned on 25 on November 1961, and on February 03 on 2017, the first stories American fleet decommissioning ceremony of an atomic aircraft carrier.

        Enterprise may once again become the "first nuclear". For example, in Ukraine.

        I made a summary. Yesterday there was an attempt to break through in the Zaitsevo area (north of Gorlovka) we threw them and the APU rolled back. All evening art worked near Donetsk. At night, the Lugansk suburb was shelled from 152 mm.

        The United States has a ban on the sale and transfer of military technology of the PRC. Yes, and no one will buy, the resource has been worked out, even if you do not take into account the fact that it has already been cut.

      unloaded eight nuclear reactors of an aircraft carrier, deactivated its propulsion systems,
      to paraphrase: "only ghosts go on an aircraft carrier without a motor!"

    unloaded eight aircraft carrier nuclear reactors
    Who knows what this means? Do they have that when they ran out of fuel in the reactor they shoved a new one next? Well, or two at once. Or did this trough really have a power plant of 8 reactors?

      they built it right away ... just at that time there probably weren’t enough powerful reactors that they could give out 200+ megawatts ... collected from 8 and 4 turbines

    until the disposal plan is determined by the US Navy.
    Under the museum it would be better. Or in some training center for training pilots to remake. It will be a pity if stupidly sawn into metal.

    It was necessary to invite Makkeyushka. He has extensive experience in eliminating aircraft carriers. He still had to give the Star of a Hero for “Forrestal”.

        Well yes, of course it is yes At today's auction on the Belarusian Currency and Stock Exchange, the Belarusian ruble weakened against a basket of currencies.
        Today, European and Russian currencies have risen sharply:
        - the euro exchange rate plus 70 points - 13 850 Belarusian rubles;
        - The Russian ruble exchange rate added 4,5 points - 296,5 Belarusian rubles.
        But the US dollar rate has remained unchanged today - 10 170 Belarusian rubles. And now again and in more detail - on which fence and in what letters did you "see" something?

    Without reactors ??? And what will he do in this form? And the Americans have not made such reactors for a long time. Reserve - it’s all the same, when necessary - it can be put into operation .. And here .... Is it only to be used as a “tethered” airfield ....

    Consisted. 8 A2W reactors with a total capacity of 280 hp (000 MW). The Nimitz already had 210 A2W reactors with a total capacity of 4 hp. or 260 MW

    I thought after the reactors were removed and deactivated somewhere in Bangladesh they would be pulled for analysis.

    I wonder if they were offers from the Indians to buy? Of course, with the transfer of all technologies and vykabachivaniya at a price for many years. wink And then they claimed that they spent so much money on an obsolete aircraft carrier, instead of buying a new modern one. Here are just no market for aircraft carriers. This product is a piece and rarely when not used. Moreover, as a rule, it is strongly used.

    I do not like Americans much, but for the 60s it was a mega-ship that the mattresses built.
