The Operation Atalanta flagship, ESPS Galicia and ESPS Victoria performed a simultaneous refuel with American supply ship, USNS Carl Brashaer.
ESPS Galicia ensured that her fuel tanks were fully topped up in preparation for her journey home to Rota, Spain, when she departs the EU Naval Force later this week.
ESPS Meteoro also refuelled from USNS Carl Brashaer, before joining a Spanish formation with ESPS Galicia and ESPS Meteoro. The formation of ships practiced close-quarters manoeuvring, before separating to continue their patrols.
ESPS Victoria will join Operation Atalanta on Tuesday 6 October.
