Exercises of Collective Training of the Spanish Navy visit Eagles (13/09/2017)

Scale in the port of Águilas of the "Segura", "Sella", "Tambre" and "Turia" cazamines belonging to the Navy's Contraminas Measurements Force.

The days 16 and 17 of September will be open day.

The "Segura", "Sella", "Tambre" and "Turia" cazaminas, who are carrying out exercises to detect and neutralize explosive devices in the waters of Mazarrón and Águilas, are scheduled to make a stopover in the latter port on 16 and September, 17th.

During their stay, the cazaminas will hold open days on Saturday, September 16, from 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and on Sunday, from 10:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.

The visit will consist of a tour of different compartments of the ships, which will explain the equipment used, the missions entrusted and the way of working of these ships.

Also, at 20:13 hours next Saturday, September 16 (time of sunset), will take place on board the units a ceremony of solemn descent of the flag presided over by the Commander of the Countermeasures Force, Captain of Naval Rafael Arcos Palacios.

The ceremony will be held, faithful to the Maritime Ceremonial, following the customs and customs of the Navy.

The public who wishes it can witness this act from the pier.

The main mission of this class of ships is the detection and neutralization of submerged explosive devices that may have been placed in access to ports, naval bases, coastal defeats or amphibious operations areas.

The ships of the Mine Action Force therefore have a fundamental role in the ability to project naval power over land, since they are units that allow safe access to the coast of a Naval Force.

They can carry out their tasks within the framework of national maritime security or collective security (integrated into NATO or EU groupings) or any coalition with Spanish participation.

They have advanced and sophisticated integrated command and control systems, as well as underwater detection and classification, including different remote control vehicles (ROVs) and divers specializing in the deactivation of explosives.

The four cazaminas that enter port form a tactical grouping to the command of the Captain of Frigate Rafael Torrecillas of the Prado, that is carrying out tasks of training in the practice of protocols and operative procedures in force.

They are made with completely inert and innocuous means, which are collected at the end of the training.

All this without environmental impact.

The "Segura", "Sella", "Tambre" and "Turia" cazaminas were built by the Bazán National Company (now Navantia) in Cartagena.

These modern ships were delivered to the Navy between 1999 and 2000

The "Tajo" and "Duero" cazaminas complete the series of 6 units that the Navy has.
