Navy Base Kitsap
From the northeast corner of the Olympic Peninsula which encompasses 2,716-acres of Naval Magazine Indian Island to the southern portion of the Navy’s largest West Coast underground fuel storage facility near Orchard Point at the Manchester Fuel Department, the Navy has an extensive presence within the West Puget Sound.
With the consolidation of Naval Submarine Base Bangor, Naval Undersea Warfare Center Keyport and Naval Station Bremerton in 2004, the formation of Naval Base Kitsap, the largest naval installation in the Northwest, was instituted. NBK provides services to several major afloat commands including a Nimitz-class aircraft carrier and three types of active submarines; assists numerous tenant shore commands to include Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility, Naval Undersea Warfare Center Division-Keyport, Fleet and Industrial Supply Center-Puget Sound and Strategic Weapons Facility-Pacific.
The Mission of Naval Base Kitsap is to serve as the host command for the Navy’s fleet throughout West Puget Sound, and to provide base operating services, including support to a nuclear powered aircraft carrier, two Military Sealift Command combat logistic ships, and 14 submarines representing all three classes of U.S. Navy submarines. Evidence of our drive for excellence is reflected within numerous food service, environmental, energy reductions, and pollution control awards received during this award evaluation period.
