Marinette Marine Delivers Third MCM To U.S. Navy

Marinette Marine Corporation, Marinette, Wis., recently turned over the mine countermeasures ship Patriot (MCM-7) to the U.S. Navy. The event is the last significant milestone for the MCM-7 and marks the culmination of 10 years of Marinette Marine Corporation (MMC) involvement in mine countermeasures vessel design and construction for the Navy.

The MCM-7 is the third mine countermeasures ship to be built by MMC. The ship is 224 feet long, approximately 39 feet wide, and displaces approximately 1,300 tons when fully loaded. The placement of the Patriot and her sister ships into the U.S. Navy fleet provide a quantum increase in mine countermeasure capability.

The MCM-7 will remain at Marinette Marine for approximately two months to allow the Navy crew to complete the crew training necessary to safely operate the ship while t r a n s i t i n g to its home port of Charleston, S.C.
