Wisdom, arts and skills were the virtues for which Athena, identified with Roman Minerva, was one of the most important Olympian deities.
 
By the same virtues, we try to be inspired in our life and work in Minerva.
 
We aim to provide superior client service offering Maximum Quality and striving for Zero Casualties.
 
The goal of our ongoing safety, security, environmental protection and health program is “zero incidents” onboard and ashore.
 
Protecting the safety and health of our employees, subcontractors and related personnel is of the utmost importance. “Safety First” is a core value of our culture, and we are dedicated to protect the safety and health of all those associated with our Company.
 
MAXIMUM QUALITY THROUGH SUPERIOR MANAGEMENT
 
Managing a young and well maintained fleet, meeting new industry requirements, whilst complying with all applicable rules and regulations, minimizes the risk in the environment we operate.
 
Focusing on safe and healthy work environments, onboard and ashore, we respect the dignity and the rights of the individual and offer equal opportunity to all employees in order to develop and realize their career goals. 
 
We earn the confidence of our clients by maintaining a robust Safety, Security, Quality and Environmental Management system in compliance with ISM & ISPS Codes, ISO 9001 and 14001 requirements.
 
 
The selection and career development procedure for our officers and crews and the rigorous familiarization and training program ensures that high quality services are provided.
 
Professionally trained and experienced shore personnel are continuously monitoring that the high quality of the services we provide is maintained and continuously improved to meet and to exceed our clients’ expectations.
 
 
Trained and experienced crew, supported by the same level of shore-based personnel, ensure the Company’s success. STCW is considered the starting point of the educational programs.
