KNM Ogna - M 315

Trøndelag, Norway

The Norwegian M-315 was built by Westermoen Båtbyggeri & Mekaniske Verksted AS in Mandal, and was launched in 1955 as a Saude class minesweeper. She was delivered to the Norwegian navy in March the same year. She had a straightforward career with no notable events. After decades of service named KNM Ogna she was stricken from the navy lists in April 1979. She was sold for scrapping and sank outside Hoddøya in the late 1990s. Today the wreck rest on her keel on a depth of 2 to 20 meter west in Håkilen on Statland.
