Vella Gulf gets green light to deploy, after technical issues

The guided-missile cruiser Vella Gulf has received the green light to continue its deployment after getting underway last week and successfully wrapping up sea trials.

“USS Vella Gulf (CG 72) has successfully completed sea trials and will continue on its mission,” 2nd Fleet spokeswoman Lt. Marycate Walsh said in a statement Monday. “Mid-Atlantic Regional Maintenance Center, ship’s force and Navy technical experts helped to execute work items on a condensed timeline to get the ship back to sea.”

The Vella Gulf has faced multiple technical issues that have kept the ship and crew in port in Norfolk, Virginia, after the ship initially deployed with the Eisenhower Carrier Strike Group in February.

The ship returned to its homeport in late February, less than a week after setting out with the Eisenhower, due to a fuel oil leak. After that problem was fixed and the ship returned to the sea in March, it suffered another leak in the same fuel tank and had to return to Norfolk a second time.
