Ems Offshore Service GmbH & Co. KG at Leer on the River Ems, further upstream, to the SE of Emden. Possibly the Seatowage photo of 'Ems Pull' shows the house flag - it is not very clear - but it appears on the funnels and there is the drawing which also appears on the company website. English version: Quarterly divided black (top), red (hoist and fly), and blue (bottom); in the centre a black-rimmed white disk containing black stylized initials 'eos', the 's' pushing through the rim.
"Blue" and not purple.
The 'Fleet' section gives full details on EOS's two tugs and six pontoons. The (clickable) photos in the 'Projects' section illustrate the company's fields of activity, as listed: heavy lift transports; RoRo shipments; towage; and "other", rather spectacular! These vessels are active all over Europe.
For a better view of the house flag in action, see this Shipspotting photo:
Design on funnels helps confirm blue, not purple.
PS: could this firm be related to EMS Shipping & Trading, the house flag of which so much resembles the above?

According to Klaus-Peter Bühne the company is a daughter of Leer (Eastern Frisia) based company Briese Schiffahrts GmbH und Co. KG.

The branches are bulk shipping, fruit shipping, container shipping, concepts and ship construction.
Ems Offshore runs offshore pontons and two offshore tugboats.
