RELAMPAGO PRACTICES SKILLS WITH UAE NAVY SHIPJanuary 18, 2019 - 11:03
Partnerships and cooperation are important more now than ever in maritime security operations. Working alongside our regional partners increases capability and reach as we continue to deter, disrupt and repress piracy.
ESPS Relámpago conducted a Passing Exercise (PASSEX) with the UAE Navy corvette UEAS Al Hesen on 16th January. The PASSEX included a series of communications and manoeuvring exercises. Personnel from the UAE Navy also saw damage control exercises demonstrated by Relámpago’s crew, and discussed some of the equipment used in counter-piracy operations.
These exercises provide the warships a valuable opportunity to test their communication and coordination linkages, and strengthen the mutual understanding of the ships’ capabilities, practices, and procedures.
The successful results of the exercise are a testament to the commitment of participating ships in contributing to global maritime security through counter-piracy and maritime security efforts. Op ATALANTA is more than ships, and encouraging cooperation and coordination amongst our partners remains important using all assets at our disposal.
