NS SAVANNAH REFUELING SITE COMPARISONS; ECONOMIC AND SAFETY

The safety features and costs related to refueling the N.S. Savannah at Yorktown, Virginia and Sandy Hook in New York Harbor are analyzed and compared to those for Galveston, Texas. Refueling costs were estimated by comparing personnel requirements and the elapsed time of the refueling operation at each site. Safety features of each site are compared on the basis of population, climatology and hydrology. Results indicate the cost of refueling to be greater at Sandy Hook and Yorktown than at Galveston.
