An urgent advisory has been sent out warning seafarers to exercise caution in the Gulf of Guinea after a report of pirate activity in the area.


  1. Description: UKMTO has received a report that an incident occurred to a MV on the 242130UTCJUL18 in PSN 1447N 01444E.

Vessels transiting the area are advised to exercise caution and adhere to BMP5. ARX Maritime Anti-Piracy barriers feature in the latest BMP5 as an advised measure to harden vessels. 

They are a non-lethal anti-piracy barrier that will significantly increase the chance of your crew and vessel surviving a pirate attack. They're a cost effective, environmentally friendly, alternative to razor wire.
