Cost-cutting initiatives for painting, surface corrosion abatement, new blasting approaches, and strategies for managing unplanned maintenance highlight the agenda of the Fleet Maintenance & Modernization Symposium 2010, set for Sept. 14-15.

Meeting the Challenges: War-fighting Effectiveness, Current Readiness, Service Life & Affordability” is the theme of the symposium, sponsored by the Tidewater Section of the American Society of Naval Engineers.

The annual event provides a forum for professional growth, business development, networking, and an open exchange of ideas for supporting the ships and craft of the U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard.

More than 40 presentations are planned, and more than 2,000 visitors are expected. The 125+ exhibitors include suppliers, governmental agencies and professional associations, including SSPC: The Society for Protective Coatings.

Keynoters will be ADM Gary Roughead, USN, Chief of Naval Operations; ADM John C. Harvey Jr., USN, Commander, Fleet Forces Command; and Sean J. Stackley, Assistant Secretary of the Navy (Research, Development and Acquisition).

Among the presentations planned:

• Initiatives to Reduce Cost of Painting Ships

• Unplanned Maintenance Scheduling
