Built in Gdansk, Poland, in 1984 the Esperanza — one of 14 vessels commissioned by the Russian government — was used by the Russian Navy as a fire-fighting ship in Murmansk. At 236.2 feet, with a top speed of 15 knots, Esperanza is ideal for fast and long-range work, such as chasing the Japanese whaling fleet! It is equipped with a first-class communications system and its ice-class status makes it suitable for work in the polar regions.

After chartering Esperanza in early 2002, Greenpeace spent many months refitting it to the highest possible environmental standards. First we removed and contained the asbestos onboard, then we added:
- a more efficient diesel engines;
- onboard recycling of waste water;
- a waste-based heating system;
- bilge water purifiers;
- TBT-free hull paint;
- ammonia-based refrigeration and air-conditioning;
- and an environmentally and economically efficient propulsion system to reduce CO2 emissions.
Esperanza now sails as a proud example of a truly "green" ship!
In addition, standard Greenpeace operating equipment has also been fitted. A new helicopter deck has been added, as well as special boat cranes to launch the inflatables.
