EU NAVFOR mark decade counter-piracy operations off the coast of Somalia | Coastweek

OFF SOMALIA - EU NAVFOR has been conducting counter-piracy operations off the coast of Somalia since 2008. Advanced cooperation between EU NAVFOR units and other maritime security organisations and departments, keeps the international maritime trade flowing through these important sea-lanes. An important factor in maritime operations is the use of helicopter assets, these provide extensive capabilities to ships at sea. Onboard ESPS Meteoro, the multi-purpose Seahawk SH60B helicopter can conduct up to six hours of flight operations daily and regularly conducts night flying operations. PHOTOS - EU NAVFOR

PMAESA and KPA staff members | Coastweek

OFF SOMALIA -- Guarding World Food Programme (WFP) and vulnerable vessels in the Indian Ocean and Gulf of Aden is one of Operation Atalanta’s key tasks. The WFP ship Petra II has an embarked EU NAVFOR Autonomous Vessel Protection Detachment (AVPD) on board to ensure her valuable cargo of food-aid is protected en route to Somalia. EU NAVFOR is made up of over 20 countries, which routinely provide AVPD’s for potentially exposed ships. A team of troops from the Montenegrin military currently guards Petra II; their presence helps the vital humanitarian aid get to the people of Somalia affected by drought and famine safely. Having the Montenegrin military fully integrated into Operation Atalanta, provides the protection that these ships need against the threat of piracy and strengthen maritime security in the region.
