On Oct. 6, the EU NAVFOR Dutch support ship HNLMS Amsterdam gave assistance to a drifting vessel with 26 crewmembers on board. EU NAVFOR French Flagship FS De Grasse informed HNLMS Amsterdam about a vessel, from the regional authorities in Puntland, in distress. The vessel, with 26 crewmembers on board, had lost propulsion due to a lack of fuel for its engines and was drifting after her anchor chain had broken. The Dutch warship sent her helicopter and then a boarding team including an interpreter and several technicians to secure the vessel. HNLMS Amsterdam finally positioned herself alongside the vessel for fuel resupplying and the 26 crewmembers were provided with food and water.
