Um-Qasr, Iraq – What used to be the old ITSAM camp built by the US Coalition Forces in 2009, recently raised a Swiftships flag to commemorate the transition to what will now be known as Camp Swift – Iraq. This facility has become the new place of residence for Swiftships employees and contractors in Iraq under Swiftships management. The camp was a gift from the Iraq Ministry of Defense in response to Swiftships exemplary support in Iraq (co-partnered) with United States Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) during the 35m Patrol Boat Program. The IqN operates a total of twelve 35m patrol boats which were built and currently maintained by Swiftships. Head of Iraqi Navy, Al-Robaey recently visited Swiftships’ team in Iraq to thank them for the great job they are doing and for standing by the Iraqi Navy’s side during the situation currently facing the Iraqi government.
“We have been working around the clock to ensure the IqNs mission is kept at the highest order, ensuring the tasks for the Iraq Navy to keep its oil platforms safe are met”, said CEO Shehraze Shah.
