Colombian Navy Warship Ready for Operation Atalanta

Colombian Navy warship, ARC 7 de Agosto, recently completed sea trials with the Spanish Navy prior to her collaboration with Operation Atalanta off the coast of Somalia.

Conducted at the Spanish Navy Combat at Sea Centre in south western Spain, the sea training ensured that ARC 7 de Agosto was ready to deploy to the EU counter-piracy operation.

A Spanish Navy liaison team is embarked in the Colombian warship to provide any necessary support or advice. The ARC 7 de Agosto, with a crew of 65 personnel, will join Operation Atalanta on 9 August 2015 and is commanded by Captain Darwin Alberto Alonso Torres.
