UK Modernization for Estonian Ships May 16, 2019

Estonia's Sandown class mines have been modernized in the United Kingdom.

Within the scope of modernization; Thales 2093 variable depth sonar, replaced with Thales 2193 hull-mounted sonar. In this way, the platforms became more compatible with the shallow waters of the Baltic. In the work carried out in Rosyth-based Babcock Facilities, the combat center was modernized and the M-Cube system integration of the Thales production system. The 4 ton capacity cranes on the ships were removed and the old sonar slots on the body made of GRP were evaluated for the placement of new sensor interfaces. In addition, the coatings around the sonar housing were reinforced and made resistant to explosions under water.
