Saturn5 has extensive coverage of how the Turkish government has taken steps to get its people out Libya in a series of post which are found (and linked to) at The Evacuation Of Turkish Citizens From Libya:
With today's evacuations the number of people evacuated by see increased to 8351. Turkey evacuated approximately 20444 people since the beginning of the crisis.
Turkey has maintained quite a presence off Libya and used a combination of ferries and warships to perform the evacuations and provide security.

Saturn5 has coverage of a Turkish ship stopping a Somali pirate attack, too, here. Turkey's use of its sea power is growing and effective.
