OPV Relámpago in Operation Atalanta

OPV Relampago (Offshore Patrol Vessel) is joining the Operation ATALANTA to fight against piracy off the coast of Somalia. On this way the EUROMARFOR will be reinforced during the inter-monsoon period with this Spanish recently commissioned vessel configured as Oceanic Patrol Boat. She is the third of the "Meteoro" class ships and she will conduct her mission with a crew of 80 sailors, including the SH-60B helicopter assitant personnel and the boarding team marine detachment .
