Our Headquarters are in San Carlos, near San Fernando, Cádiz, sharing facilities with other Marine Corps Groups.

The Service and Staff Company includes the personnel and materiel in charge of all administrative and maintenance support aspects.

The Company currently employs AAV 7A1 ehicles which offer the first waves of Rifle Companies, the necessary protection during landings. It also has communication and recovery vehicles.

The Craft Company, has semi-rigid SUPERCAT, boats for ship-to-shore movements. This type of boat is used in a wide variety of missions, among them all-weather, fast and stealthy insertion and extraction of MC units beyond the horizon.

The Combat Sapper Company provides the Brigade with the necessary mobility, counter-mobility and protection. An ambitious procuring program intends to equip the Company with new EOD materiel, PIRAHNA III - type sapper vehicles and materiel to open up corridors to pave the way for landings.

The Beach Movement Company is the General Support sapper company in charge of preparing the beach for amphibious landings and improvised heliports. To carry out these tasks, the company has a variety of machinery like power generators, diggers, bulldozers, forklifts, tipcarts, etc.

Our daily activities are aimed at training sappers, craft and amphibious vehicles crews and riflemen, without neglecting physical training and exercises.

We have ample materiel, vehicles and machinery. Maintenance of those assets is an important part of our daily life.
