Counter piracy warship escort World Food vessel to Somalia port | Coastweek

OFF SOMALIA -- The Italian warship ITS Euro has recently escorted World Food Programme (WFP) chartered vessel MV Apollonas in the Gulf of Aden. When chartered by the WFP, the vessel transports food-aid around the region. ITS Euro was on-hand to ensure she was able to transit the area safely without fear of pirate attack. At the beginning of the escort, ITS Euro’s AB-212 helicopter transferred a team to MV Apollonas in order to explain to her Captain the escort procedures to ensure both ships were kept safe. Thanks to these escorts the EU Naval Force has enabled the WFP to safely deliver humanitarian aid to areas of Somalia hardest hit by food shortages. As well as providing escort to vulnerable vessels, Operation Atalanta ships patrol the seas off Somalia to ensure pirates are unable to operate and seafarers are able to use the waters safely.

Safer seas will benefit Somalia Farmers and Livestock Exporters

Safer seas now benefit Somalia farmers and Livestock exporters | Coastweek

OFF SOMALIA -- During one of her counter-piracy patrols off the coast of Somalia, sailors from Operation Atalanta Italian warship, ITS Euro, recently met the crew of a dhow that was transporting livestock from Somalia to the Middle East. After warm greetings were exchanged, the dhow’s captain invited some of the Italian sailors on board to meet his crew and to thank them for helping to keep the Somali waters safe from pirates. The Italian team took some supplies with them to give to the crew, such as food and water. Operation Atalanta warships routinely patrol the waters of the Gulf of Aden and Indian Ocean to ensure that there is nowhere for pirates to hide and that the attacks that plagued seafarers off the Somali coast just a few years ago do not start up again. As the Somali coast is now safer, Somali farmers and livestock exporters have been able to increase their access to the enormous markets on the Arabian Peninsula. It is estimated that the livestock industry contributes 40 per cent to Somalia’s Gross Domestic Product, so ensuring that the trading routes remain open is crucial. PHOTOS - EU NAVFOR

Operation Atalanta warship ITS Euro escort 'World Food' vessel | Coastweek

OFF SOMALIA (Operation Atalanta) -- Protecting potentially vulnerable vessels from piracy off the coast of Somalia is one of Operation Atalanta’s key tasks. Italian warship, ITS Euro, recently escorted World Food Programme (WFP) ship MV Antaios as she transited through the Indian Ocean and Gulf of Aden carrying precious food-aid. Since Operation Atalanta began in 2008, 385 WFP chartered vessels have been protected by the EU Naval Force, either by traditional escort using warships or by the embarking of an Autonomous Vessel Protection Detachment (AVPD). These escorts and AVPDs have ensured 1,200,614 metric tons of WFP food-aid have so far been delivered to Somalia. As well as protecting WFP ships, Operation Atalanta navy continue to patrol waters off Somalia coast to deter and disrupt piracy. Operation personnel also support sister EU missions in Somalia to achieve increased maritime security for the region. PHOTOS - EU NAVFOR
