DP I – Anchor Handling and Supply Vessel
The Artemis is a DP-1 Anchor Handling Tug & Supply Vessel, built in Husum, Germany in 1984. She was acquired by the Asso Group in 2013, fully overhauled and upgraded in Chalkis Shipyards in Greece in 2014 (including Transfer of Class to ABS) and now operates mainly as a support vessel for the Group’s CLV Atalanti on a worldwide basis offering, in addition, extensive supply, stand-by and auxiliary services on the various projects that she is involved in.
When not involved in support operations for the Group, she is employed on various offshore and subsea scopes of work including ROV operations, surveys, etc. On occasion, she is also chartered out as a pure towing vessel given her high Bollard Pull figures.
She holds a long track record on a variety of offshore projects and is being kept up to date with new equipment and careful maintenance to ensure zero down-time and highest possible performance on her employments.
The Artemis (/ˈɑːrtɪmɪs/; in Greek: Άρτεμις) is named after the Greek mythological goddess of the hunt, the wilderness, wild animals, the Moon and chastity. She was the daughter of Zeus and Leto, and the twin sister of Apollo. The goddess Diana is her Roman equivalent.
