Frankfurt Am Main Deploys to SNMG2

On the morning of October 19, the group of service providers “Frankfurt am Main” left Wilhelmshaven to replace the frigate “Lübeck” with the Standing NATO Maritime Group 2 (SNMG2) in the Aegean Sea.

“The crew is highly motivated and well trained for our future tasks within the NATO Confederation in the Aegean Sea and we look forward to the coming months with anticipation. After a long time of “seafaring” and the shipyard, we are happy to finally be able to do what we are there for: to sail to the sea,” says Fregattenkapitän Carsten Kauke, commander of the” Frankfurt am Main.”

From the end of October to the end of March 2018, the group will be deployed in the sea area off the Turkish coast to support the multinational NATO organization there.
