Tideway RollingstoneThe Tideway Rollingstone (IMO: 7814101, Port of Registry: Flushing, The Netherlands) is a stone dumping vessel, built in 1979 as the semi-submersible heavy transport vessel “Super Servant 1” at the Oshima yard in
Japan for the former owner Wijsmuller Transport. She was converted into her current form in 1992 at IJsselwerf, Capelle a/d IJssel, The Netherlands. The Tideway Rollingstone is 139 meters long, 32 meters wide and has an operational speed of 12 to 14 knots. She can operate in water depths up to 300 meters. The ship has two large stone storage areas with a total storage capacity of 13,000 tons. Between these two storages a pipe storage and assembly tower was placed, which suspends the
fall pipe through which the stones are dumped. The vessel has a stone dumping capacity of 700 tons per hour.

The Tideway Rollingstone is scheduled to arrive later tonight at the Waalhaven, Rotterdam from Norway.
