Umoe Mandal - MCMV


From 1994 to 1998 Umoe Mandal delivered nine Oksøy class Mine CounterMeasure Vessels (MCMVs) to the Royal Norwegian Navy.

This all-composite material sandwich Surface Effect Ship (SES) has proven to represent State-of-the-Art MCMVs participating in national and international exercises and assignments. The air cushioned vehicle tend to stay more operational in worse weather conditions compared to traditional monohulls.

It is also proven that a SES air cushion catamaran receives 60% less shock from underwater explosions compared to traditional monohulls of the same size, making the Oksøy class the safest MCMV ever buildt.
