The team in China welcomed the MV Rolldock Storm in Chinese waters last week. The MV Rolldock Storm is an innovative, highly adaptable transport vessels that combines semi-submersible, heavy lift and RORO capabilities. The vessel was in China to load nine modules using her heavy-lift capabilities and one module using her unique heavy RORO capabilities. The team assisted with her port call to load the units and offered local support (including the making of a snowman!). We want to thank the all parties involved for making this a smooth operation, despite heavy winds and snow, and look forward to receiving her in Chinese waters again soon!
The modules will be part of one of Europe’s biggest biofuels facilities being constructed. Once built, the facility will be among the biggest in Europe to produce sustainable aviation fuel and renewable diesel made from waste. A facility of this size could produce enough renewable diesel to avoid 2,800,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions a year, the equivalent of taking more than 1 million European cars off the roads. The new facility will help the Netherlands and the rest of Europe to meet internationally binding emissions reduction targets.
