NATOSNMCMG2 Operational Handover

Nisi­da, Naples: In a small cer­e­mo­ny held today in Pal­ma di Mal­lor­ca, Spain, Cap­tain Abdul­hamit Sen­er, Com­man­der of the Stand­ing NATO Counter Mea­sure Group 2 made an Oper­a­tional Han­dover to Cap­tain Mar­tin Klu­ver of Mar­itime Com­mand Naples.

Dur­ing his six months in com­mand of the Group, Cap­tain Sen­er not only led his ships in sup­port of NATO’s Oper­a­tion Active Endeav­our but also car­ried out an exten­sive pro­gram of NATO and non-NATO port vis­its as well as par­tic­i­pat­ing in exer­cis­es.

SNMCMG2 is main­tained at high-readi­ness and can deploy as required by the Alliance even at strate­gic dis­tance. It is made up of ships from var­i­ous Allied nations which train and oper­ate togeth­er through­out the year and par­tic­i­pate in numer­ous exer­cis­es con­duct­ed by the Alliance, as a mine-counter mea­sure force. The pri­ma­ry task is to defend sea routes from the under­wa­ter mine threat. As a sec­ondary task the group col­lects impor­tant data on the marine envi­ron­ment and sea bot­tom, which con­tributes to sci­en­tif­ic research.
