December 18 - Dutch shipping line, RollDock BV, has taken delivery of RollDock Star - the latest of four prototype newbuildings - from Flensburger-Schiffbau-Gesellschaft (FSG).

Further to the news posted by HLPFI on September 2, 2013 and after successful sea trials, FSG has handed over the 151 m long RollDock Star, which is designed to carry heavy and OOG project cargoes.

With two heavy duty cranes able to move cargo weighing up to 700 tonnes and a height-adjustable stern ramp, the vessel is adaptable to port piers of differing levels and individual loads weighing up to 3,000 tonnes can be loaded or offloaded via ro-ro operation.

RollDock Star's sister ship, RollDock Storm, is due for completion and delivery in spring 2014.
