KENYAN NAVY VISITS EU NAVFOR IN MOMBASASeptember 4, 2018 - 14:51
Building and developing regional maritime capability is one of the key aims of EU NAVFOR; by sharing our expertise we promote lasting regional maritime solutions which will help to deter and prevent acts of piracy throughout the region.
From the 28th to 31st of August 2018, EU NAVFOR Italian Warship Federico Martinengo visited the Port of Mombasa in Kenya. During the Port visit, ITS Federico Martinengo carried out her first Local Maritime Capacity Building (LMCB) combined exercise together with our Kenyan Navy counterparts.
Five Officers and 24 Seamen took part on board ITS Martinengo in the planned activities in a variety of exercises designed to share pertinent and specific knowledge concerning firefighting, Counter Improvised Explosive Device (I.E.D.) drills, and first aid procedures.
By working together as two international bodies we can work to deter piracy in the waters of the Gulf of Aden and the West Indian ocean.
