USNS Patuxent (T-AO 201)

Underway Replenishment Oilers - T-AO

USNS Patuxent is one of Military Sealift Command's fourteen Fleet Replenishment Oilers and is part of the 39 ships in the Naval Fleet Auxiliary Force. Length: 677 feet, 6 inches Beam: 97 feet, 6 inches Draft: 35 feet

Fourteen underway replenishment oilers are operated by Military Sealift Command and provide underway replenishment of fuel to U.S. Navy ships at sea and jet fuel for aircraft assigned to aircraft carriers. Three of the newest MSC underway replenishment oilers have double hulls.

There are stations on both sides of each ship for underway replenishment of fuel and stores.

Fitted with medium-speed diesel propulsion, the delivery of USNS Patuxent (T-AO 201), USNS Rappahannock (T-AO 204) and USNS Laramie (T-AO 203) was delayed by the decision to fit double hulls to meet the requirements of the Oil Pollution Act of 1990. This modification increased construction time from 32 to 42 months and reduced cargo capacity by 17 percent, although this can be restored in an emergency. Hull separation is 1.83 m at the sides and 1.98 m on the bottom.
