NATO ships to make Norwegian coast safer: One of NATO’s naval groups is visiting Trondheim on Friday (10 August 2018), and from there it will go on to search for sea mines dating back to World War II. The operation will make the waters safer for fishermen and shipping in the area.

Standing NATO Mine Counter Measures Group One (SNMCMG1) currently consists of four ships from Belgium, Norway, Latvia and Lithuania. During their port visit to Trondheim members of the public will be able to visit the ships to find out more about their work. After leaving Trondheim, SNMCMG1 will begin historical ordnance disposal operations along the Norwegian coast. During this mission the group will search and identify sea mines and other dangerous ordnance left over from World War II. All the data collected will be handed to the Norwegian authorities to improve maritime safety. This year the ships have carried out mine clearance operations off the coast of France, the United Kingdom and in the Baltic Sea.
