BigLift Shipping has decided to end its co-operation with Rolldock Shipping in the joint venture 'BigRoll Shipping' from 1 January 2018. From then on, the heavy transport vessels will be added to the BigLift fleet.
BigLift Barentsz and BigLift Baffin are two identical state of the art Module Carriers. They advance BigLift’s shipping capabilities by offering a large flush deck for ro-ro cargos. The broader range of vessels will enable BigLift to offer clients even better customised shipping solutions of ever larger and heavier cargoes, both in large projects as in single shipments.
The fleet-expansion expresses BigLift’s commitment to the heavy transport market, offering reliability, state of the art vessels and high class engineering services.
With Finnish Swedish 1A ice class, powering and steering redundancy and a strong, flush deck of 125 x 42 m the MC Class vessels will be able to handle large module shipments, cranes and other voluminous cargo. The vessels already executed multiple challenging voyages in which they demonstrated their low fuel consumption, excellent service speed and reduced vessel motions.
Ongoing contracts and tenders of BigRoll Shipping will still be executed in co-operation with Rolldock Shipping.
