BigRoll Barentsz delivered

April 11 - BigRoll Shipping's first MC Class vessel, BigRoll Barentsz, has been handed over to the company by Cosco Dalian Shipyard.

The module carrier will immediately enter into a multi-year contract with Yamgaz - the consortium of Technip, JGC Corporation and Chiyoda - for module transportation as part of the Yamal LNG project.

The BigRoll vessel has the ability to operate in temperatures as low as -55 degrees centigrade, while the large unobstructed deck and the high service speed make the MC Class a perfect fit for the Yamal project, claims the shipping company.

Three further module carriers - BigRoll Bering, BigRoll Baffin and BigRoll Beaufort - will also be delivered to the joint venture between RollDock Shipping and BigLift Shipping.

The ships feature a completely flush deck, large ballast capacity and dynamic positioning capabilities.

BigRoll Barentsz was launched by the shipyard in November 2015, while the second vessel, BigRoll Bering, was launched in January of this year.
