The Maritime Administration has funded decommissioning and removal of the ship's nuclear systems. The Savannah had undergone work at Colonna's Shipyard of Norfolk, Virginia, beginning 15 August 2006. That $995,000 job included exterior structural and lighting repairs, removing shipboard cranes and wiring, refurbishing water-damaged interior spaces, and removing mold, mildew and painting some of the interior. On 30 January 2007, she was towed to Pier 23, which is owned by the City of Newport News.

I see the NS Savannah is now docked in Baltimore. Have the nuclear system been removed as stated above? From what anecdotal info I've seen, it appears that the nuclear systems have not been removed, although I'm sure the fuel has been.
