Shipboard Fire Aboard the USNS SHUGHART

JMS provided engineering support to the Military Sealift Command with personnel deployed to Bahrain to investigate a shipboard fire aboard the USNS SHUGHART. The vessel suffered a fire in the Auxiliary Machinery Room, Hydraulic Control Room, and the Auxiliary Boiler Room. As a result, extensive damage was done to structure, mechanical systems, and electrical systems. JMS is part of a team that is conducting a comprehensive assessment of the fire damage and preparing a shipyard work package that will enable the vessel to effect repairs and return to service.

NDI and its subcontractor JMS Naval Architects & Salvage Engineers were assigned the responsibility of developing a repair specification for the subject vessel. The structural repairs were accomplished at ASRY Bahrain.

These recommendations are the result of two ship visits in Bahrain during May and June 2004. During the first visit JMS was a member of a team of 4 surveyors. Shipyard technical personnel were also employed in the generation of some of this data. Deliverables were a complete and detailed repair report and detailed design and repair drawings. Follow on ship checks were conducted upon the vessel’s return to the U.S.
