USS Fitzgerald is on the (Trans)shelf

November 24 - The damaged guided-missile destroyer USS Fitzgerald (DDG-62) has left the US naval base in Yokosuka, Japan on its journey to the US Gulf Coast for repairs.

The USS Fitzgerald was towed from Yokosuka to meet Dockwise's heavy lift semi-submersible vessel Transshelf, where it was floated on board.

In the months prior to the vessel's departure from Yokosuka, technicians and shipbuilders at Ship Repair Facility Yokosuka made significant progress in preparing the USS Fitzgerald for the journey, including de-watering, de-fueling, hull and superstructure repairs, and placing key systems in layup maintenance.

The USS Fitzgerald has been at Yokosuka since June 17, following a fatal collision with the container vessel ACX Crystal off the coast of Japan.
