EU NAVFOR Spanish Sailors and Marines Train with Malagasy Navy to Help Improve Maritime Security in the Indian OceanJune 1, 2017 - 08:40
The sailors and marines on board EU NAVFOR’s Spanish flagship, ESPS Galicia, recently took the opportunity to train with the Malagasy Navy as part of the European Union’s commitment to help improve the maritime capabilities of regional states to strengthen security in the Indian Ocean.
During the day the Malagasy teams were given training on force protection and boarding operations. They were also given a briefing in ESPS Galicia’s Operations Room on the drills that the ship’s crew will carry out in the event of a piracy attack or other incident at sea.
Training such as this helps to strengthen cooperation between EU NAVFOR and maritime partners in the region.
At the end of the port visit, ESPS Galicia returned to her patrols to deter and disrupt acts of piracy off the Somali coast.
