UK-based business risk consultancy Drum Cussac has delivered an anti-piracy training programme for the Malagasy Navy at the Naval Base in Diego Suarez, Madagascar.

Prior to the delivery, the company’s risk management consultants worked with 30 Malagasy Naval personnel to improve the navy’s anti-piracy capability when operating in an offshore environment.

According to the consultancy, the development of Madagascar’s offshore oil and gas industry has led to a greater need for better security in the region, in spite of the drop in reported cases of offshore security incidents in East Africa.

Drum Cussac is said to be suitable for handling security operations with the Malagasy Navy in order to address multiple challenges.

Drum Cussac Offshore director Andrew Nicholson said training helps build credible and professional security teams that are capable of conducting anti-piracy and security duties generally.

"The training will assist the Malagasy Navy in providing a secure environment for the region’s offshore oil and gas sector," Nicholson added.

"We have worked closely with the Malagasy authorities, agencies and regulators over a 12-month period and we hope to continue this relationship by delivering further projects in the region."

Malagasy Military Defence director General de Brigade Rabeharindranto said: "This was pragmatic training delivered by Drum Cussac and has given our men additional knowledge and skills to conduct anti-piracy operations."

The consultancy offers risk mitigation and security solutions for the oil and gas industry and foreign governments in Africa, the Middle East and Asia Pacific.

Additionally, the company has a deep understanding of the need for proportionate security and risk mitigation measures. Currently, Drum Cussac supports African operations in Nigeria, Tanzania, Kenya, Madagascar and the Mozambique Channel.
