Privat örlogsflotta ska jaga pirater i vår

Recommended Posts


"What Typhon is setting out to do is corralling ships together in a confined area and escorting them properly – with a mothership, with armed guards in ribs patrolling around.

The ribs will be manned by ex-Royal Marines, as will the group's base in Abu Dhabi. Murray, a former French Foreign Legionnaire, will be Typhon's chairman, with Lord Dannatt a non-executive.

They will be joined by non-executives including General Sir Jack Deverell, former commander of Allied Forces Northern Europe; Admiral Harry Ulrich, ex-head of US naval forces in Europe; and Peter Ahlas, former chief of HSBC's marine and insurance business.


The company is buying three boats, which are currently being fitted out in Singapore.

Each of its craft will have up to 40 security officers, drawn from former British Royal Marines, as well as a crew of 20.

The ships will be fitted with machine guns and the staff will have rifles.

Flera storföretag och försäkringsbolag har gått samman. Jag läste om dessa ideer, förberedelser för över 1 år sedan så det är inget nytt som ploppat upp utan något som varit i grytan länge. Det är många företag som köpt Svenska marin fartyg, patrullbåtar man kunde läsa vilka som vunnit FMV anbuds aktioner och flera Brittiska företag har köpt Svenska patrullbåtar. Det som är lite tveksamt är om det blir British ex royal navy eller billigare arbetskraft? Flera Brittiska företag i dag använder öst europeer etc.

Kraven brukar ju vara marin erfarenhet, stcw 95, sso etc.

Finns några oseriösa bolag som är registrerade utomlands som inte följer stcw 95 men det är väl en tidsfråga då det beslutades redan 1995 att man skulle följa en gemensam lag/arbetssätt/krav på utb mfl.
