Another fire at the UDC of the US Navy: repairs of the USS "Kearsarge" are suspended in Norfolk

In the United States, repairs to the USS "Kearsarge" (LHD 3) multi-purpose landing ship were stopped after a minor fire on board. According to Defense News, the US Navy command demanded a detailed investigation of all the circumstances of the incident.


The US Navy has requested an immediate halt to repairs to the Wasp-class Kearsarge UDC at the General Dynamics shipyard in Norfolk following a fire that occurred during repairs on board. Although the resulting fire was minor and was quickly extinguished, the command of the American fleet intends to investigate all the circumstances of the incident, since a week ago, under similar circumstances, a similar UDC "Bonomme Richard" almost burned down.

The fire on board the Kearsarge UDC reportedly occurred during welding: a spark hit flammable materials that ignited. The staff quickly coped with the fire, the help of the fire brigades was not required. Nevertheless, repair work on the USS "Kearsarge", as well as all other ships at the General Dynamics shipyard in Norfolk, have been suspended indefinitely.

We must ensure that all established fire safety protocols and procedures are followed

- said the spokesman for the command of the United States Navy Rory O'Connor

When work will be resumed at the UDC USS "Kearsarge" (LHD 3), which got up for repair at the end of 2019, is not reported.

            You are wrong, there is a difference. The rules of the Russian language matter here. God is written with a capital letter when it means a single supreme deity. In colloquial speech, when using stable expressions like "thank God"; "for God's sake"; "God knows" God is written with a small letter.

      There was a UDC in the dock under repair.
      Everything was fine, but only for now
      Suddenly, suddenly a fire broke out -
      The welder Anvar works smartly.

      The nuclear submarines are waiting for their turn
      Can comprehend their sad destiny.
      If Anwar can't handle him there
      Kamal and Hakim are working together.

      Each has its own ...

So they recruit by ad, various Latinos and blacks, without education, who wanted to sneeze on safety measures.

      Not. Everything is simpler. There is a procedure for admission to hazardous work. It looks something like this. In the morning, before the shift, the foremen gather in the room where the duty officer who is responsible for the safety of a group of compartments sits (or what is it correctly called in the fleet?). And admission begins.
      The foremen take turns and report where they will work today and what to do. The officer, knowing his compartments, imagines how and what can be done there without endangering the ship. For example, everything has to be closed with a felt blanket at once, there are enough several working fire extinguishers, there is a blowdown with carbon dioxide, etc. “And I don’t believe you, John Smith, you tried to deceive me yesterday, said that you covered the insulation soaked in oil with a felt mat, but in fact didn’t cover it up. ". Having received the signed orders, the foremen disperse to work, and the officer begins to walk around their workplaces with a check whether they all, swinging, are observing enough.
      An excellent system, we once copied it from the Americans. It is based on the fact that an officer can arrange a big kaku for the brigades if they cut off. And he is interested in good repair, his ship, then he will be raked, so he will not foolishly pinch people either. And all this collapses instantly if the repair is purchased. The brigadiers then do not care about the officers, they drive the shaft with the hands of unskilled, drunken, often stoned hard workers, not paying attention to anyone. Well, here it is burning ...

    It looks like this is already a systemic problem of the US Navy. They are losing the culture of production. To prevent fires, I propose to use the know-how of "Uzbek welding" or on the extreme "blue tape". Only blue other colors will not work.

        We shouldn't be happy - after all, the state of the Russian Navy is much worse. But even in this case, we can derive some benefit from the difficulties of the US Navy. The main thing is to see the growing phenomena in the US Navy in time and use them wisely.

        You may not need to rejoice, but you do not need to be sad either. After all, all their pluses minus us.

    In the United States, repairs to the USS "Kearsarge" (LHD 3) multi-purpose landing ship were stopped after a minor fire on board. According to Defense News, the US Navy command demanded a detailed investigation of all the circumstances of the incident.

    The 2nd UDC, after all, is suspicious. Since this is only the second such case, it is 50% that it is an accident and 50% that it is sabotage.

    the fire on board the "Kearsarge" UDC occurred during welding: the spark hit the combustible materials, which ignited.

    It is obvious - violations of safety standards during welding, at the point to provide a place for the work and clean it of flammable objects and materials.
