Noteworthy Activities

  • La fragata "Blas de Lezo" (F-103) realizará su integración en la agrupación permanente de la OTAN SNMG2 en el Mediterráneo. El día 27 de agosto, esta fragata salió del Arsenal Militar de Ferrol para realizar la Inspección pre-despliegue y calificación previa a la integración en la Agrupación Permanente de la OTAN Número 2 (SNMG2).

  • The offshore patrol vessel (OPV) ‘Atalaya’ will conduct a series of activities with African navies during the next four months as part of the Defense Diplomacy Plan, organized by the Ministry of Defense and the Spanish Navy.

  • The ‘Mistral’ is deployed in Operation ‘Sea Guardian’ as of August 15th, a Maritime Security operation focused on enhancing awareness of the maritime domain to deter and fight terrorism, as well as mitigate other threats in the Mediterranean Sea and near the Strait of Gibraltar.

  • Frigate ‘Canarias’ (F-86) has just left her homeport in Rota Naval Base to participate in the EU-led counter-piracy Operation EUNAVFOR ATALANTA in the Indian Ocean, entrusted also with the protection of vulnerable shipping in the area, especially WFP (World Food Program) and AMISOM (African Union Mission in Somalia) ships. This is a clear example of Spain’s commitment with European Union and United Nations missions.

  • Frigate ‘Méndez Núñez’ (F-104) departed Ferrol to start an operational deployment during which she will circumnavigate the globe sailing eastwards in the year when we celebrate the 500th anniversary of the first voyage around the world completed by Juan Sebastián de Elcano.
