Dutch Tideway Buys Amarcon’s OCTOPUS-Onboard for Rock Dumping Vessel

The Dutch offshore contractor Tideway, specialized in offshore dredging, landfall construction and pipeline stabilization, has purchased Amarcon’s OCTOPUS-Onboard for her rock dumping vessel Rollingstone.

For a period of nine months Tideway leased OCTOPUS-Onboard for the purpose of response monitoring & prediction and heavy weather decision support onboard the Rollingstone. In this period Tideway tested and evaluated the software to its fullest, leading to purchase of the whole system in January of 2012. With OCTOPUS-Onboard installed on the vessel, the master of the vessels has a clear indication of operational windows for rock dumping operations and under which heading the fall-pipe can be let down into the sea.

Amarcon’s Jaap Jan Stoker is content with the ongoing collaboration between Tideway and Amarcon: “It means a great deal to us that Tideway decided to purchase our OCTOPUS-Onboard system after the lease period. It is good to see that our product helps Tideway to execute offshore rocking dumping projects in an efficient, safe and money saving manner.”
