Castor Vali Services Nigeria (CVSN) was very pleased to be invited to join the crew on board HMS TRENT, the Royal Navy Batch II Ocean Patrol vessel (OPV) in Lagos. On board CVSN shared offshore Nigeria experiences with our former Royal Navy and Royal Marine Commando colleagues. This is HMS Trent’s first visit to Lagos and CVSN was proud to be one of a handful of UK companies invited to exhibit on board.
The UK Government states that: HMS Trent, which is the first Royal Navy vessel to operate in the region for three years, will conduct maritime security patrols as well as support partner navies by helping them to develop key maritime skills and develop plans for future operations in the region.
This deployment is a clear signal of the UK’s commitment to being more persistently engaged in the region, through which more than £6 billion of UK trade passes every year.
The team at CVSN send best wishes and calm seas to both the vessel and crew.
