Here is the view of the great escort of the Mighty Servant 1 in the Gulf of Aden, by Belgian frigate Louise-Marie (F 931) of European Union Naval Force (EU NAVFOR) – Operation Atalanta on September 13 and 14 (this view was missed out by me in September).
Mighty Servant 1, a 29,000-ton semi-submersible heavy-lift ship was transiting from the Maldives to Norway with the hull of the North Sea Gjøa platform of Statoil ASA constructed by Samsung shipyard in South Korea. The escort initially provided by Louise-Marie was later completed by Swedish corvette Malmoe.
