First steel cut for BigRoll Barentsz

June 16 - The first steel has been cut for BigRoll Shipping's new 21,000-dwt MC class module carrier, BigRoll Barentsz, at the COSCO Dalian Shipyard.

BigRoll Barentsz is the first of two vessels designed for the transportation of ultra-large and heavy modular cargoes that BigRoll Shipping has on order with the Chinese shipyard. Sister vessel BigRoll Bering will follow in October 2015 and the Netherlands based shipping line holds an option for two additional vessels.

BigRoll says that the MC class vessels will deliver dedicated transport services to major onshore LNG projects, and to large-scale offshore developments using the vessel's dynamic positioning capabilities.

Big Roll Barentsz will have Finnish Swedish 1A ice class notation, which will make it ideally suited to operations in remote Arctic locations. Its deck will be completely flush and open stern, with an open space measuring 42 m x 125 m.
