Spanish OPV, Tanzanian Navy Conduct Training
During their recent port visit to Dar Es Salaam, EU Naval Force (EU NAVFOR) Spanish Offshore Patrol Vessel, ESPS Tornado, conducted training with a team from the Tanzanian Navy. Nineteen members of the Tanzanian Navy were given a briefing on boarding operations, followed by a boarding exercise.
The training afternoon was viewed as a great success, contributing to the growing mutual understanding between EU Naval Force and the Tanzanian Forces, who are a key regional partner in the counter-piracy effort.
On completion of the training, one of the Tanzanian trainees stated “This has been a great opportunity to build relations with the EU Naval Force.”
