Minehunter "DUERO" (M-35)

The “Duero” (M-35) is the fifth unit of the “Segura”-class minehunters built by IZAR in Cartagena.

She was launched in April 2003 and delivered to the Spanish Navy on July 5th 2004. Her sponsor was Mrs. Clara Mulet, wife of the Mayor of Calp.

The “Duero” is the second Spanish Navy ship with that name: the first “Duero” was a “Nalón”-class minesweeper built in United States and transferred to the Spanish Navy in 1953 as part of the so-called Mutual Defense Assistant Program (MDAP).

A total of eight coastal minesweepers were built in the U.S. with Oregon pine wood and later transferred to the Spanish Navy.

The ship has carried out three international deployments with NATO’s Mine Countermeasures Force (SNMCMG-2) and as of September 2011 she is taking part in her fourth deployment with that NATO Group.

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.
