On January 11, the German Navy’s supply tender Donau (A516) will depart its homeport of Warnemünde to join the Standing NATO Mine Countermeasures Group 1 (SNMCMG 1), the navy said.

Donau, which is one of the navy’s six Type 404 Elbe-class replenishment ships, will be part of SNMCMG 1 for six months.

The 100.55-meter-long vessel will first visit Oslo in Norway where it will be joined by Norwegian command. The tender will then transit to the North Sea.

SNMCMG1 is one of four NATO standing maritime groups which are multinational, integrated maritime forces made up of vessels from allied countries. These vessels are under continuous NATO command to perform a wide range of tasks ranging from deterrent presence and situational awareness to exercises and the conduct of operational missions.
