HS Prometheus was built by Elefsis Shipyard based to the design of Fincantieri, Italy and has as sister ship LSV ETNA, Italian Navy. The purpose of HS Prometheus (A 374) is to fully support the long-range missions of the Hellenic Fleet or a naval squadron. The logistic support vessel has to be in position to refuel the squadron and also provide full logistic support in terms of repair workshops, spare parts, ammunition replenishment and supplies. HS Prometheus is also capable of performing civil protection roles at times of crisis. The ship has high autonomous capacity to provide electrical power, fresh water and prepared meals and also has fully equipped hospital and medical facilities on board. The choice of the name PROMETHEUS for the new Logistic Support vessel refers straight to the Greek mythology. Prometheus was a Titan who with the help of Goddess Athena and breaking Zeus' order, stole the secret of Fire (Energy) and gave it as a gift to Man. Throughout history Prometheus has symbolized unyielding strength that resists oppression.
