On Monday 23 June EU Naval Force warship HNLMS De Zeven Provinciën hosted members of the Seychelles Coastguard. The visit was in support of EUCAP Nestor’s initiative to promote regional maritime capability building.
On board the Dutch frigate eighteen recruits from the Coastguard were briefed on Operation Atalanta, the European Union’s counter-piracy mission off the Coast of Somalia and the EU’s Comprehensive Approach to the region. Following this, members of the ship’s company gave a tour around the ship, with a focus on boarding operations and counter-piracy procedures.
During the visit to Port Victoria the crew from HNLMS De Zeven Provinciën took the opportunity to resupply the ship and get some well-earned rest and recreation. She left the port on Tuesday 24 June and has now resumed counter-piracy patrols in pirate high risk area.
HNLMS De Zeven Provinciën joined Operation Atalanta at the end of May 2014.
