Spotted: BigRoll’s Barentsz Makes a Splash

Spotted BigRoll Shipping Launches First MC Class Ship

Netherlands-based BigRoll Shipping’s latest sea beauty hit the waters on October 27, 2015 at Cosco Dalian Shipyard.

BigRoll Barentsz, the first of four MC (Module Carriers) Class vessels under construction, remains on schedule for delivery in March 2016.

The second BigRoll vessel, the BigRoll Bering is expected to be launched in December, with an expected delivery date of May 2016.

Directly after delivery from the yard the first two vessels will 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 two remaining vessels, to be named BigRoll Baffin and BigRoll Beaufort, are expected for delivery in the second half of 2016 and early 2017, respectively.

The Finnish Swedish 1A Ice Class vessels are designed with particular focus on a high ballast capacity, low fuel consumption, high service speed and sea keeping behavior. They have the ability to operate in temperatures as low as minus 39 degrees centigrade.
