New MC vessel joins BigRoll fleet

COSCO Dalian Shipyard has handed over the second module carrier (MC) vessel, the BigRoll Bering, to Dutch heavy marine transportation provider BigRoll Shipping. The vessel will immediately begin module transportation work for an LNG project in Russia.

The vessel measures 173 meters in LOA, 42 meters in breadth and 10.5 meters in depth.

BigRoll said on Friday that the BigRoll Bering will enter into a multi-year contract with Yamgaz immediately upon delivery. Yamgaz is a consortium consisting of Technip, JGC Corporation, and Chiyoda. The contract entails module transportation work for the Yamal LNG project in Sabetta, Russia.

BigRoll also stated that its first MC vessel, the BigRoll Barentz, delivered in April this year, has already completed its first voyage for the Yamgaz consortium.

The company added that during its maiden voyage, the BigRoll Barentz transported Yamal LNG modules directly from the fabrication yard in China to the Yamal project site.

BigRoll is building additional two MC vessels, the BigRoll Baffin, and BigRoll Beaufort which should follow with delivery in the second half of 2016 and early 2017. The Finnish-Swedish 1A Ice Class MC 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.
