Transit through the Bab El Mandeb (BAM)

In support of maritime security operations, combined task force 150 (CTF
150) will provide surface vessel escort and/or convoy operations for
merchant vessels transiting the BAM 04-10 November 2013.

The operation will exercise CTF 150’s capability and reaction time to a
maritime threat while safeguarding merchant traffic in the area.

Although this operation is strictly voluntary, CMF seeks to maximize
participation and aims to enhance coordination with vessel masters in
conjunction with other maritime organizations including UKMTO and MARLO.

Participating vessel operators may use VHF communications, initially
Channel 16 and report while entering and departing the bam.

For additional information contact Lt Cdr Muhammad Aslam, CTF 150 N5 at
+973-1785-3952 or +973-3503-0693 mobile, or DSN 439-3952. Email:

Soil investigation work will be carried out by means of Cone Penetration
Test (CPT) using crane barge.

A crane barge with leg spuds will be working on only one CPT location at
any one time. The crane barge, with tug boats in attendance, will have a
circular safety working zone of 80 meters radius. Tugboats will be used for
shifting the barge from one location to another. Safety boats will be
deployed in the vicinity of the working areas to warn other craft of the
project work.

Craft involved in the works will exhibit the appropriate local and
international day and night signals.

Caution : When in the vicinity of the working area, mariners are reminded
to:
a) keep well clear and not to enter the working area;
b) maintain a proper lookout;
c) proceed at a safe speed & navigate with caution;
d) maintain a listening watch on appropriate VHF Channel 22;
and
e) communicate with Jurong Control on VHF Channel 22 for assistance, if
required.
