AECO meets Arctic Command

October 28th, 2013

On the first day of November AECO will meet with Arctic Command’s major-general Stig Østergaard Nielsen to discuss of the two parties can have mutual interest in a closer dialogue.  Arctic Command has been in charge of SAREX, the Search and rescue exercises that has been carried out on the east coast of Greenland the past two years. Both years the scenarios have been cruise vessels in critical situations in an challenging area with limited search and rescue capacity. The last scenario was a small size cruise vessel arriving from Svalbard, needing assistance by Ella Ø in East Greenland.
