Non-Nuclear Repair and Construction Engineering (Department 474) is an integral part of Electric Boat's Maintenance and Modernization business. With this business, Electric Boat provides mission-ready submarines to the fleet through maintenance, modernization, alterations and improvements. D474 engineers provide non-nuclear engineering support for maintenance and alteration activities on submarines, including the planning, execution, and certification of work.

The D474 piping and mechanical engineering group operates in a collaborative, dynamic and team-oriented work environment. Using a design-build approach, D474 interfaces with Operations, Design, Planning Yard, Test, and Program Office personnel in order to arrive at innovative solutions to difficult problems. Interaction with the United States Navy (USN) customer is typical, including the Supervisor of Shipbuilding Groton (SOSG), Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA), and submarine crews. Awareness and understanding of military specifications, submarine shipbuilding specifications and design criteria, USN maintenance/overhaul requirements, and special emphasis programs are developed through focused computer-based or classroom training, on-the-job training, qualification programs and mentoring.

D474 piping and mechanical engineers are responsible for developing technical work documents, providing technical direction and oversight, and resolving shipboard conditions associated with:

Mechanical component failure or damage due to in-service use

Seawater and non-seawater piping and components

Hydraulic systems and controls

Steering and diving systems

Steam and propulsion plant components

Combat Systems (mechanical elements)

Ship alterations and improvements

Fabrication and welding techniques

Specific tasks required by a D474 piping and mechanical engineer include, but are not limited to:

Planning of submarine maintenance and modernization work including development of work breakdown structures and technical work documents

Interpretation and translation of shipbuilding specifications, maintenance requirements and contractual requirements into clear and concise technical work documents

Providing deck plate support to shipyard trades and resolution of emergent issues during execution of technical work documents

Understanding maintenance criteria, submarine piping and mechanical drawings as well as machining and welding processes

Development of technical rationale to support approval of non-conforming conditions

Success in this environment requires that every task be accomplished with a collaborative, hands-on, proactive and deadline-driven yet technically rigorous approach. Training in the use of fall protection for high work safety, limited radiation worker qualifications and steam plant training may be required for certain tasks.
