USS Abraham Lincoln (ABE) arrived in San Diego in January 2020, following a record-breaking 295 days at sea the longest post-Cold War era deployment for a U.S. carrier breaking her own record in the process.

The carrier s most recent deployment involved joint-carrier operations with the USS John C. Stennis (CVN-74) in the Mediterranean Sea. The two carrier strike groups operations included more than 130 aircrafts, 10 ships and over 9,000 Sailors and Marines.

After an arduous deployment, the ABE needed scheduled maintenance to the pre-deployment enhancements originally supported by MUSE. The enhancements included five 2500kVA and two 3750kVA substations a major power transformation that allowed ABE to connect to shore power safely and securely without interruption.

The successful termination of the enhancements and final inspection completed by MUSE and lead by construction electrician Petty Officer 1st Class Jeremy Tatlock, oversaw the redeployment of one 2500kVA substation to support the Fleet Readiness Center Southwest Maintenance Facility that supports the F-35 Maintenance Program.

The power transformation provided by MUSE is a classic demonstration of the flexibility and technical expertise MUSE technicians routinely provide to Navy and Marine Corps activities.
