SA Navy frigates arrive in Durban to exercise with US Navy

Two frigates of the South African Navy, SAS AMATOLA and SAS MENDI arrived in Durban this afternoon (Thursday, 9 July) and have berthed at Salisbury Island.

Although there was no announcement of the ships’ pending arrival it is understood that they are here to take part in Project Sea Shield, which involves taking a group of leading business people to gain experience of a navy ship at sea and to use the exercise to build relationships among big business.

On Monday 13 July the US Navy destroyer USS ARLEIGH BURKE is due to arrive from Reunion for a short visit. The ship will berth at M Shed on the T Jetty and like the two South African frigates, will not be open to the public.

At the conclusion of the American warship’s visit it is expected that the three vessels will sail together for Simon’s Town and will be conducting naval exercises en route. It is possible, although there has again been no confirmation of this, that a submarine of the South Africa Navy will also take part in these exercises.
