WILLEMSTAD - The His Majesty Groningen is coming to Curaçao. The station ship of the Navy replaces the Zr. Ms. Zeeland.
The Groningen will remain in the Caribbean for two years and that is new.
Until now, the station ships remained for four months. The Ministry of Defense now wants to take a different approach by leaving the ship here and changing the crew in between.
The Groningen helps in the fight against drugs and carries out rescue operations.
