Topic: Shipyard Infrastructure Optimization Program (SIOP)
Presenter: RADM Dean VanderLey, Commander, Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command Pacific
The Navy’s four public shipyards perform a vital role in national defense by executing maintenance on submarines and aircraft carriers in order to provide combat-ready ships to the fleet. Originally designed and built in the 19th century, the Navy’s public shipyards are not efficiently configured to maintain and modernize nuclear-powered aircraft carriers and submarines.
To create the shipyards that our nation needs and to manage significant investment in facilities and equipment, the Navy established the Shipyard Infrastructure Optimization Program (SIOP) program office in May 2018 as a centrally-managed program at the Echelon II level to construct and recapitalize dry docks, optimize infrastructure, and update industrial plant equipment. In the Pacific area of operations, SIOP addresses Puget Sound Naval Shipyard at Naval Base Kitsap, Washington and Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard at Joint Base Pearl Harbor Hickam, Hawaii.
