The auxiliary ship “Alerta” was built by Rostock shipyards in the former German Democratic Republic as transport ship. She was christened “Jasmund” and delivered to the GDR Navy in 1985. The ship was offered to the Spanish Navy in 1991 and finally purchased the following year.

The ship was transferred to Las Palmas Shipyards for upgrading works and named “Alerta”.
