Italian Navy frigate trains with Tanzanian Navy sailors

Italian Navy anti-submarine frigate ITS Euro, deployed to operation Atalanta off the Horn of Africa, trained with sailors and divers from the Tanzanian Navy during a recent port visit to Dar Es Salaam.

Operation Atalanta sailors conducted different exercises with their Tanzanian counterparts, including how to board suspicious vessels, improvised explosive device (IED) classification and how to move IEDs safely underwater and render them safe.

Maritime training with regional partners is an extremely important aspect of Operation Atalanta’s work countering piracy off the coast of Somalia. The aim is to increase the capabilities and capacities of regional maritime forces to ensure that there is nowhere for pirates to hide and all seafarers’ safety can be assured.
