AN ADVANCED TECHNOLOGICAL APPROACH
Our MCMVs benefit from decades of continuous product development. Displacing from 600 to 2,000 tonnes and with lengths of between 54 and 90 metres, all are built from advanced materials and incorporate optimum levels of acoustic and magnetic stealth. Extensive use of high-tensile, non-magnetic steel is a good example of this design approach. As well as minimising signature, the use of this steel reduces vulnerability to fire and explosion whilst assisting with ship stability. It also eases longer-term maintenance requirements and improves durability, ensuring a long service life. Survivability is further enhanced by our focus on shock resistance. This reinforces the safety of both vessel and crew.
