Minehunter 'Turia' (M-34)

The “Turia” (M-34) is the fourth unit of the “Segura”-class minehunters built by Bazán in Cartagena.

She was launched on November 22nd 1999 in a ceremony presided over by the Minister of Defense, Federico Trillo and the Chief of Naval Staff, Admiral Antonio Moreno. The “Turia” was delivered to the Spanish Navy on October 16th 2000.

Her Battle Ensign was presented by the Lady Mayor of Valencia, Rita Barberá on December 5th 2001.

The “Turia” is the second Spanish Navy ship with that name: the first one was a Minesweeper (M-21), later converted into a Patrol Boat (P-51). She was transferred from the U.S. Navy in October 1959. She had been built in Tampa (Florida) with Oregon pine wood and was part of the Spanish Navy Minesweeper Squadron along with the “Nalón” and “Ulla”.

The ship has carried out two international deployments with NATO’s Mine Countermeasures Force (SNMCMG-2) and four deployments with the former MCMFOURSOUTH.

At national level, the ship has participated in several maneuvers like GRUFLEX in Rota, SPANISH MINEX in the Balearic Islands and ROUTE SOURVEY in most Spanish ports.
