Underwater Hull Cleanings Completed on Two JHSVs

Posted November 11, 2015

Seaward’s Mobile Diving Unit 3 completed underwater hull cleanings on two Joint High Speed Vessels (JHSV’s). Mobile-3 performed a full underwater hull cleaning on the USNS Trenton (JHSV-5), latest ship of this class and a partial cleaning and inspection of the USNS Choctaw County (JHSV-2) in a three week period of time. Cleaning of this class is made more challenging due to the foul release coating and the detailed cleaning needed on the water jet assemblies and impellers for the two underwater hulls. All cleanings were accomplished using NAVSEA 00C5 approved procedures.  As always the Seaward divers rose to the challenge.
