1Title:  Simplified view of S8G naval nuclear propulsion plant Add
 Summary:  A simplified view of the S8G reactor used to power the Ohio-class Trident ballistic missile submarines. The S8G plant's two turbines provide 60,000 shp (thermal power, shaft horsepower), approaching twice the power produced by the S6G plant used to drive the Los Angeles-class attack submarines. Admiral Hyman Rickover, head of Naval Reactors when the Trident submarine was designed in the early 1970s, supported the 60,000 shp plant, which contributed to the submarine's large size (560 feet long, with a submerged displacement of 18,700 tons).

2Title:  USS Ohio, the first Trident submarine Add
 Summary:  The USS Ohio, lead boat in the Ohio ballistic missile submarine class, during her construction at Electric Boat. The Ohio is powered by an S8G reactor. An S8G prototype plant was built at the Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory facility in West Milton, New York; the prototype reactor achieved full power operations in December 1979. The Ohio was commissioned on 11 November 1981, about two and a half years behind schedule.
