The Danish Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) Platoon prepared their equipment and boarded the Turkish TCG Sokullu Mehmetpasa during a simulation exercise to examine a strange barrel that had been found during mine clearance in the ocean.
The exercise took place recently in the Cartagena harbor in Southern Spain, one of the locations used during NATO Exercise Trident Juncture.
Following identification and verification of the substances in the barrel, the team then cleared the area and moved the barrel to the harbor.
After successfully completing the task, each member of the team doffed their protective gear and completed checks for residual chemical agents.
