The AOR "Cantabria" (A-15) departs Ferrol towards the British Isles to integrate into the SNMG-2 (Standing NATO Maritime Group 2).

The AOR "Cantabria" participate in the multinational exercises "Joint Warrior".

It is the second time in just over a year that the ‘Cantabria’ integrates into SNMGs. The auxiliary oiler has just successfully undergone a series of ship qualification trials to test and certify its readiness state to operate with these multinational naval forces.

The SPS "Patiño" (A-14) sailed yesterday from its base in Ferrol to the port of Halifax to start the deployment of two months to support the Royal Canadian Navy.

The SPS "Patiño" (A-14) on arrival in Canada will be integrated into a group of RCN and USN ship assigned, along the east coast of North America, about multinational exercises (TGEX-216).

This deployment is a result of a request to the Navy by the Royal Canadian Navy, its inability to supply at sea. This support is based on the principle of solidarity between NATO members, by which a country provides a capability that no other, all without incurring an additional cost and without entailing a reduction in their own operational capabilities of our Navy.

The Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) with the deployment of SPS "Patiño" (A-14) aims to improve the training of its units and personnel in the replenishment at sea and the protection of HVU (High Value Unit).

In turn, this support provides to Spain a support to the defense industry, foreign prestige for the Spanish Navy and the benefits of training for crews and exchange of knowledge and exprerience with the integration in other allied navy.
