On Thursday, February 12, 2009, the command and support ship ABSALON was transferred from the international naval force, Combined Task Force 150 (TF150), to the US lead Combined Task Force 151 (TF151).

The main purpose of the transfer was to strengthen the efforts against especially piracy, which is the primary task of TF151, in the Gulf of Aden, Arabian Gulf, Indian Ocean and Red Sea.

The first days in the new task force was used for practicing cooperation, including boarding exercises and line ups.
