Todd Delivers Frigate
Ahead Of Schedule
Guided Missile Frigate USS
Lewis B. Puller (FFG-23) was delivered to the Navy recently after completion of its Post
Shakedown Availability (PSA) by the Los Angeles Division of
Todd Pacific Shipyards Corpora- tion, it was announced recently by Len M. Thorell, vice president and general manager.
Delivery of the Puller on sched- ule was particularly noteworthy in that the Los Angeles Division was able to absorb a 26 percent increase in work scope identified during the PSA without extend- ing the contract completion date, thereby allowing the ship to meet its schedule commitment as planned. The Puller represents the sixth consecutive frigate PSA to be completed on or ahead of contract schedule and significant- ly below estimated cost by the
Los Angeles Division.
