Portugal Maritime Defence news – Portugal’s EUR 2.5 million Maritime Control Centre starts operations on October 17th.


Portugal’s Maritime Control Centre (CMAR) is starting operations under the National Authority for Maritime Traffic Control (DGRM). The new centre integrates Portugal’s Maritime Traffic Control Centre (CCTM) and Fisheries Control and Surveillance Centre (CCVP/FM).


Portugal invested around EUR 2.5 million Euros for its brand-new Maritime Control Centre that was funded under the Mar 2020 program.


“The aim is, through a better response capacity, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to improve the level of service to ships, safety, security and maritime surveillance, including monitoring and control of Marine Protected Areas”, according to Portugal’s Ministry of Economy and Maritime Affairs.


While more than 80,000 large ships pass through Portugal’s maritime area each year, many of them carrying dangerous goods, at least 15,000 large ships call at Portugal’s ports each year.
