International subsea service group Reef Subsea AS unveiled its new inspection, maintenance and repair (IMR) and subsea construction vessel at Aberdeen Harbour on 25th April 2012.
The Reef Larissa, which has just returned from four days of trials in the North Sea, will be operated by Aberdeen-based ROV and survey services provider Specialist Subsea Services Ltd (S³).
The vessel is one of two sister ships on a five year charter agreement from Neptune Subsea AS. Originally named Neptune Larissa and Neptune Despina, the vessels have been renamed the Reef Larissa and Reef Despina. Measuring 98.6m x 19m in size, the Reef Larissa is a DP2 class, suitable for deepwater, and sleeps up to 78 people. Two of S³’s Triton XLX work class ROVs are installed on board along with a suite of survey equipment.
