The acceptance tests, which took place on April 25, come about two months after the builder’s initial tests were completed.
The demonstrations allowed the U.S. Navy and General Dynamics National Steel and Shipbuilding Company (NASSCO) to assess the ship’s readiness to join the Navy.
During the acceptance tests, the ship underwent a series of tests at sea and in port to evaluate various systems in the ship.
John Leithammer, program manager for the US Naval Assistance and Special Missions Program, said: “John Lewis-class ophthalmic machines will add capacity to the Navy’s combat logistics forces and become a cornerstone of the offshore fuel system.
The John Lewis-class fleet will be commanded by the Naval Command to supply drinking water, lubricants and fuel, fresh and frozen supplies and supplies to US Navy ships at sea.
Meanwhile, the US Navy and General Dynamics NASSCO have authenticated the keel for the third John Lewis oil, Earl Warren (T-AO 207).
Currently, General Dynamics NASSCO is constructing various refill oils, including Harvey Milk (T-AO 206), Robert F. Kennedy (T-AO 208), Earl Warren (T-AO 207), Lucy Stone (T-AO 209) and Sojourner The Truth (T-AO 210).
Late last month, the Navy laid a keel on the fourth ship of the Expeditionary Naval Base (ESB), the future USS John L Canley (ESB 6).
Named after John L. Canley, Medal of Honor and former Major General of the United States Marine Corps (USMC), ESB 6 is used for several military operations.
The company also designed Robert E. Symanek (ESB 7) with John L. Canley (ESB 6).
