The Navy participates in national and international exercises

Exercises are part of our core activity. We rehearse in order to know how to act in real situations.

Through national exercises, the Navy is developing the defence of our home country. The exercises range from exercises at basic-unit level to extensive joint exercises involving all the capabilities and units of the Navy.

Exercises together with other authorities improve our readiness to contribute to comprehensive security in society and to providing support to other authorities. Together with other authorities, the Navy practices such activities as oil spill response, rescue operations at sea and the clearing of underwater explosives.

Through international exercises, our capacity to act as part of a multinational unit improves, as does our readiness to participate in international crisis management operations led by, for instance, the UN, the European Union or NATO. International cooperation supports our national exercises and the development of our maritime defence.
