Royal Netherlands Navy in Operation Atalanta-5

The close partnership between the EU Naval Force in Operation Atalanta and NATO in Operation Ocean Shield has been the vital path for enduring  success at the military and political fronts for both.

In the recent port visit of the Frigate HNLMS Tromp to  the Seychelles, Operation Atalanta’s Force Commander Commodore Luyckx,  was welcomed by Royal Danish Air Force Maritime Patrol and Reconnaissance Aircraft (MPRA) detachment based in the Seychelles as a part of NATO in Operation Ocean Shield.
