Speaking about his time in command, Rear Admiral Tarrant stated "It has been a privilege to command the European Union's counter-piracy operation. I am proud of my team in the Operational Headquarters and in EU Naval Force warships at sea, who have worked tirelessly to help keep WFP ships and seafarers safe. Pirates are criminals, and when you consider that between 2005 - 2012 their leaders received over 250 million Euros in ransom payments, I have no doubt that they will, if given the opportunity, try again to get outout to sea to launch attacks. It is therefore essential that the International Community remains vigilant to the potential threat."
The Force Commander of EU Naval Force Rear Admiral Rando, stated: "It has been a pleasure and an honour working with such a capable ship and such a competent and professional crew. You have provided valuable support to the EUEU Naval Force Operation Atalanta. Now for all of you it is time to rejoin your families and friends for a well deserved rest. Always fair winds and following seas"
...The Force Commander highlighted that "the Maltese Team embarked on HNLMS De Zeven Provincien is an excellent example of cooperation between nations and the European effort for operations at sea."
..."It is our duty to help curtail piracy in these areas," Curmi said. "This may have been our first such mission but I have no doubt that it won't be our last."
