Inspection vessels solve important task
The Danish inspection vessel's main task is the assertion of sovereignty, ie ensure that the commonwealth's maritime borders will not be violated by foreign powers. Denmark usually has three vessels in Greenland - two patrol vessels and an inspection ship, all subject to the Arctic Command in Nuuk,
The duties of the vessels were mentioned in Her Majesty the Queen's New Year speech. In the video below the head of the inspection ship Triton, Commander Mogens Kristensen, explains the assignment.
