Antipollution, after 7 months of ship Mimbelli goes home


After a brief technical-operational stop, the Mimbelli ship left the port of Gedda, the Saudi city of the Red Sea. During the stop, the crew, returning from the operational activity of combating piracy in the Gulf of Aden and in the Indian Ocean, received on board the visit of the vice consul general of Italy to Jeddah, Giovanni Nocera.

The commander of the Mimbelli, captain of vessel Davide Berne, during his stay met with the main military and civilian authorities, including the Saudi Al-Zhrni Commander, Saudi Al-Zhrni, the commanding officer of the Coast Guard, Colonel Fawaz Al- Maghamsi and the director of the Islamic port of Gedda, Captain Saher Talawi (pictured).

There was an opportunity to receive on board the visit of a small part of the Italian community residing in Jeddah, and some managers in the commercial sector of the Messina Line units and the Jolly Nero commander, who normally sail in the warm and insidious waters of the Gulf of Aden and the Somali basin.

After the last stop on the Arabian peninsula, ship Mimbelli is now heading north and is preparing to pass the Suez canal again, to return to Italy after spending seven months serving the international community to fight piracy in the NATO Ocean Shield operation.
