MV Asterix is the greenest ship in Canada’s naval fleet. Originally a commercial container ship, it was purchased by Federal Fleet Services as part of Project Resolve, and then converted into a supply ship for the Royal Canadian Navy. The vessel is intended to act as an interim replacement between the out of service Protecteur-class replenishment oiler and the future Protecteur-class auxiliary vessel. The vessel is limited in her deployment to enter dangerous areas due to her lack of weapons systems and ability to survive combat damage. She is the first naval oiler to join the Green Marine certification program.
