Minehunting Propulsion and Control Systems
The Minehunting Propulsion System, with two or three retractable azimuthal thrusters, provides an unparalleled maneuverability to the vessel in all the MCM operations in order to facilitate search and identification of underwater targets, ROV and boats launch and recovery without exposing at risk the vessel itself, the operators and high value assets such as ROVs, VDS, etc.
The System has been designed with the aim of providing an extremely low signature to the vessel when sailing in minehunting mode, either acoustic and magnetic, coupled to an effective shock resistance.
The system is operational on about 30 minehunters worldwide, with extremely satisfactory results.
The vessel design with separated Minehunting Propulsion and the transit propulsion, offers an high speed transit with good efficiency, and an extremely precise and silent operation during minehunting,
Remote Control System
The system features a Remote Control System, complemented by lightweight consoles in the ship rooms. It also includes a Dynamic Positioning System/Autopilot designed for Minehunting tasks/operations.
