On the 17th of June 2016, the second MC Class vessel for BigRoll shipping was handed over by Cosco Dalian Shipyard Co. Ltd. She 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 first BigRoll vessel, the BigRoll Barentsz, was handed over in April this year and has completed her first voyage, serving the Yamgaz consortium. During her maiden voyage she transported Yamal LNG modules directly from the fabrication yard in China to the Yamal project site in Sabetta, Russia.
BigRoll is building a further two state-of-the-art MC-Class Module Carriers: BigRoll Baffin and BigRoll Beaufort. The Finnish Swedish 1A Ice Class MC Class vessels are specifically designed for the marine transportation of major modules and equipment for large energy projects both on and offshore, to some of the most remote and inaccessible areas on the planet.
