The first MC Class vessel for BigRoll Shipping, the BigRoll Barentsz, has been successfully delivered by Cosco Dalian Shipyard Co. Ltd to the owner. The ship will now enter into a multi-year contract with Yamgaz – a consortium of Technip, JGC Corp. and Chiyoda – for the module transportation for the Yamal LNG project in Russia.
The vessel, which features a large, unobstructed deck and a high service speed, is capable of operating in temperatures as low as -55°C. This is necessary given that the region that the vessel will operate in is totally ice-bound for between seven and nine months each year.
