Dutch Warship HNLMS Tromp recently took a short break from her counter-piracy patrols, with a port visit to the Seychelles
During the visit HNLMS Tromp sailors took the opportunity to conduct training exercises with the local Seychellois coastguard. The aim of the training was to hone skills related to law enforcement, with a special focus on how to search for and apprehend suspect persons who have got on board a vessel, and to prevent them becoming a danger to the crew and themselves.

The search and apprehend training, which took place on the flight deck of HNLMS Tromp, was provided by Dutch Royal Marines from the ‘Enhanced Boarding Element’ of HNLMS Tromp.


Operation Atalanta crews train regional maritime forces on a regular basis. The training is helping to strengthen maritime security skills of regional partners and is contributing to the continued suppression of piracy in the Indian Ocean.

At the end of the port-visit, HNLMS Tromp returned to her duties, deterring and disrupting piracy off the Somali coast.
