Northern Coasts 2014 - Onboard HNLMS Zierikzee

6 sept. 2014 Puolustusvoimat - Försvarsmakten


The Finnish Defence Forces Combat Camera team were onboard HNLMS Zierikzee during NOCO 14 exercise. Lieutenant commander Gijs van Someren explain the role of the Zierikzee during the Northern Coasts 2014 exercise.

The two week long Northern Coast 2014 (NOCO14) exercise, arranged in August and September is the Navy's main exercise this year.

The main aim of the Northern Coasts exercise is to improve the multinational interoperability between the participating troops. The shallow and shoaly waters along the Finnish coast offer challenging exercise conditions where naval activity is supported by airborne and special troops.

The fictive exercise scenario is based on a crisis management operation where security threats are presented by terrorism, piracy and smuggling.

The exercise will be commanded by the Chief of Staff of the Finnish Navy, Commodore Juha Vauhkonen.
