Spotted: BigRoll Receives Its First MC-Class Newbuild

BigRoll Barentsz 3

The Netherlands-based Big Roll Shipping has taken delivery of the first of four Module Class Carriers, the BigRoll Barentsz. As featured in the photo above, the deck of the vessel is completely flush and can be used over the full length and beam for loading, discharging and stowage.

The Barentsz was delivered on 8 April 2016 by China-based Cosco Dalian Shipyard.

In combination with the large ballast capacity and the deck strength which is built up on a uniform grid of bulkheads and web frames, the ships can be used for both onshore and offshore heavy transport projects, according to Big Roll Shipping.

Big Roll Shipping says the vessel 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.

In addition to the Barentsz, the company is constructing three more module carriers: BigRoll Bering, BigRoll Baffin and Big Roll Beaufort. The Big Roll Bering is expected to be delivered in May 2016, while the remaining two vessels are scheduled for delivery in the second half of 2016 and early 2017, respectively.
