Atlantic coast, North Africa


Our customer’s ships are regularly attacked by pirate groups or contaminated by drug traffickers, putting the crew and ship at risk.
It is essential that security is restored to ensure operations continue to run smoothly and prevent the business from being impacted.

Our specialist teams implement a comprehensive strategy to reduce the impact of these illegal activities on our customer’s operations

Integration of specialist staff on-board

  • crew training on the detection and management of contamination attempts (aggressive and passive) and acts of piracy
  • ship security assessments, including access vulnerabilities, boarding vulnerabilities, protection systems, emergency procedures, etc.
  • coordination of local security teams (guards, marine escorts) and with local public safety authorities, at every port of call (coastguard, police services, navy, anti-drug units, etc.)
  • coordination of on-board crews and ongoing consulting with the Master on security issues in the event of an incident

Access control and protection in port areas

  • deployment of security guards to control access to the ships and to carry out security patrols
  • marine escort units (armed/unarmed) to protect ships and prevent/respond in the event of boarding attempts involving hostile elements (contamination or acts of piracy)
