The Spanish Navy auxiliary oiler and replenishment (AOR) ship ‘Cantabria’ has set sail from Ferrol (NW Spain) to integrate into the Standing NATO Maritime Group 2 (SNMG-2).
The ‘Cantabria’ will deploy for 45 days until the end of August participating in the international counter-terrorist operation ‘Active Endeavor’ in the Mediterranean Sea. The ‘Cantabria’ will visit the ports of Majorca, Aksaz (Turkey) and Tunis.
Before departing for this NATO operation, the AOR ‘Cantabria’ conducted a series of training exercises to achieve full operational readiness for this type of mission.
