Rolldock Orders OCTOPUS-Onboard for Newbuild

Thursday, December 02, 2010

Amarcon announced that Rolldock has ordered OCTOPUS-Onboard for the newbuild Multipurpose Heavy lift vessel Rolldock Sea. This vessel is a sister ship of the Rolldock Sun, that has been in use from the beginning of 2010. All the ships from Rolldock use similar principles, a combination between float-in/float-out, roll-on/roll-off- en lift-on/lift-off capabilities.

The Rolldock Sea is equipped with two cranes and a loading deck that can be adjusted into several positions, making it possible to adapt to every sort of dock in the world. Furthermore, the ship is semi-submersible. This means, by letting in water in ballast tanks, the Rolldock Sea is capable to let itself sink to a certain depth. In that way ships with a maximum draught up to 6 meters, can sail on to the loading deck of the Rolldock Sea. After letting the water out of the ballast tanks, the vessel is brought up again so that the cargo can be transported.
