AECO will in cooperation with the Icelandic Coast Guard, arrange a second Joint Arctic SAR TTX in Reykjavik on April 5-6, 2017. The event aims at gathering mariners, captains and other with special maritime competencies, as well as the Arctic SAR community.
AECO participates in an increasing number of search and rescue exercises, conferences and events and has throughout the past few years significantly increased the number of contacts within the Arctic Search and Rescue (SAR) community. As a part of these efforts, AECO this year initiated and organized the first Joint Arctic Search and Rescue (SAR) Workshop and Table Top Exercise (TTX), in partnership with Coast Guard Iceland and Hurtigruten. The workshop, which was carried out in Reykjavik in April, gathered Arctic SAR entities, Arctic cruise operators and vessel owners and was considered highly successful.
