SHORT STAY FOR HMS ENTERPRISE IN GIBRALTAR
October 15, 2020
HMS Enterprise arrived in Gibraltar on Sunday for a brief, programmed visit.
The multi-role hydrographic survey ship, is on her way home, following successful deployments in the Mediterranean.
It was recently deployed to Beirut following the port explosion on 4 August, where it worked alongside the Lebanese Navy Hydrographic Service to conduct a survey of the approaches to the port.
ENTERPRISE has also been working with Cypriot partners for a search and rescue exercise in the Mediterranean where she joined the Joint Rescue and Coordination Centre, the Republic of Cyprus Police Aviation Unit and 84 Squadron, from RAF Akrotiri, for the annual training.
With a complement of around 50 crew members, each equally as adaptable and multi- tasking as the Enterprise herself, her role ranges from oceanographic and hydrographic surveys and examining and mapping the seafloor to providing critical assistance to Mine Counter-Measure Vessels.
HMS Enterprise is commanded by a Gibraltarian, Commander Cecil Ladislaus.
