During the crisis experienced in 2020 caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and faced with the need to face an emergency situation, AER (Atlantic Emergency Response) was born, as a quick and effective response to all types of maritime incidents . Due to their geographical location, the Canary Islands are a link between Europe, Africa and America.
This provides an ideal environment to become an International Emergency Base formed by a network of companies that share two common objectives: coordinate the response to an emergency and anticipate and train. For AER the prevention of these events is the basis on which it works. For this and with a vision of the future, the training of all those actors who may be involved is essential.
AER is the sum of the experience of a group of professionals with extensive experience in different areas of the maritime sector: Training, Insurance, Expertise, Salvage and Rescue and a long etc.
AER’s mission is to provide a quick and effective response to all types of incidents, making the Canary Islands recognized as the place of maximum influence in the Mid-Atlantic, for its professionalism, safety, assistance, prevention and training.
The Canary Islands are one of the 17 Spanish autonomies and as such are part of the European Union (EU) and the Euro zone. Geographically, the archipelago is located in the Atlantic Ocean, northwest of the African coast, north of the Tropic of Cancer between coordinates 27º 37 ′ and 29º 25 ′ north latitude, 13º 20 ′ and 18º 10 ′ west longitude. Located just over 1000 km from the Iberian Peninsula and almost 100 km from Africa, the Canary Islands occupy a strategic enclave in the Atlantic Ocean between three continents: Europe, Africa and America.
This situation means that the archipelago has great potential as a logistics base for the traffic of goods with West Africa. In addition, it must be added that the islands are located in most of the maritime transport routes between the east coast of South America to Europe and vice versa.
Administratively, the archipelago is divided into two provinces: Santa Cruz de Tenerife, which includes the islands of Tenerife, La Gomera, La Palma and El Hierro. Las Palmas comprising the islands of Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura and Lanzarote
