SCHOTTEL: PROPULSION SYSTEMS FOR MCM USE

Since the 1970s, increasing numbers of Mine countermeasure vessels (MCMVs) have been equipped with rudder propellers, transverse thrusters and more recently with pump-jets. This article describes the technical requirements that have to be met by mine sweepers and minehunters as well as outlining technical solutions on the basis of a number of selected examples. The current situation in the field of propulsion systems is considered and future developments are briefly discussed.
