Abstract:

Progress on the building of AGOR 28, oceanographic research vessel Sally Ride. Work continues on initial outfitting lists for Sally Ride and NS5 Hierarchy. No movement on what noise treatments are to be provided for the engine room bilge top and the traction winch room deck. NCE measured the noise levels and found only a minor reduction in the exhaust noise levels on the main working deck. The plan now is to rotate the stacks to port in the hopes that the noise will be directed outboard. A path forward was developed to ensure that Armstrong and Ride have USCG approved fire plans on board prior to delivery. The government and operators finalized all of the changes to the fire plan to meet the OCMIs required changes. To keep things consistent the changes will be the same for both vessels. The one change that USCG did not require was moving the main deck DC equipment out of the deck locker and down to the first platform to provide better separation from DC Locker 1 and to provide better access to the main machinery space aft. This also frees up space in the deck locker which was limited to start with. The anti-fouling paint has failed on the Ride due to an application error. The yard will correct this issue during a planned docking prior to Builder s Trials.
