The first name of the vessel was 'Neptune Despina', Yno ZJ2011 at the Zhejiang yard, China. She was delivered on 27 October 2011 to Neptune Offshore.
She is the sister vessel to ‘Larissa’ (original name 'Neptune Larissa'), both are IMR vessels of the ULSTEIN SX130 design. The vessels were named in a joint ceremony on 26 October 2011. At the time of delivery, Reef Subsea announced their signing of two five-year charter agreements for the two vessels. The vessels, therefore, changed names to ‘Reef Larissa’ and ‘Reef Despina’.
ULSTEIN has supplied design, detail documentation and main equipment for these vessels, including products such as main switchboards, bridge and control room consoles, ULSTEIN IAS® (integrated alarm and surveillance system), ULSTEIN COM® and navigation equipment and ULSTEIN PMS (power management system).
The X-BOW®, combined with a diesel-electric propulsion system, ensures excellent performances with regards to fuel consumption, sea-keeping and speed.
2017: Now named 'Despina', the vessel is being managed by the Norway-based shipowner Golden Energy Offshore.
January 2021: Golden Energy Offshore announced that the Despina will be contributing to cutting 400t of CO2 emissions during geotechnical site investigation at Ijmuiden Ver - the largest Offshore Wind Zone in the Netherlands, by running on a biofuel mixture.
April 2021: Despina, which started its contract with Fugro in mid-January, has been awarded a two-month contract extension, with the vessel now committed until August 15, 2021. Fugro has options to further extend the contract.
January 2022: Despina has been sold to CBO in Brazil and the vessel has been renamed 'CBO Wave'. CBO has signed a contract with Petrobras for operations between 2022 and 2025.
