International Maritime Bureau Anti-Piracy Course 3rd November 2009 - Ex Socotra Table-top Exercise

Trident Operations, the Maritime Wing of RED CELL delivered a presentation on 'Dealing with a Hijack Incident - Operational Level' and ran Exercise SOCOTRA; the Table-top exercise.

The scenario-based exercise focussed on a commercial Tanker making a routine transit through the Gulf of Aden and took delegates through the process of a Hijack incident, exploring a range of issues faced by the Master and crew of a stricken vessel, as well as the important responses required from the corporate Incident Management Team. 

"The Socotra table-top exercise highlighted the practical issues facing Owners and Masters as they transit the waters off Somalia.  The delegates on the workshop advised that they found it useful."
