March 23, 2021 (Google Translation) – The Mondego patrol ship docked in Porto Santo this morning to start yet another mission in the Madeira Maritime Zone, with the aim of securing its Standard Naval Device until 11 June.
MARCH 23, 2021, 14:38
Commanded by First Lieutenant Lopes Monteiro and sailing with a garrison of 27 military personnel, the ship will carry out patrol and surveillance actions and ensure the safety of spaces under the jurisdiction of the Madeira Maritime Zone Command.
It will also have the function of guaranteeing the surrender of the security guards of the Institute for Forests and Nature Conservation (IFCN) and the Maritime Police in the Desertas and Selvagens islands.
The NRP Mondego thus replaces the NRP Douro that started this Monday at the Naval Base in Lisbon.
The NRP Mondego will remain in Porto Santo until the 25th of March, when the traffic to Funchal port will start. We are a family owned and operated business.
