Spotted: Final MC-Class Newbuild Handed Over to BigRoll

The Netherlands-based BigRoll Shipping has taken delivery of BigRoll Beaufort, the last of four Module Class carriers, from China-based Cosco Dalian Shipyard. 

BigRoll Beaufort will enter a short-term project with Yamgaz, the consortium of Technip, JGC Corporation and Chiyoda for module transportation as part of the Yamal LNG project, according to the firm.

The 20,000 dwt ship features a length of 173 meters and a width of 42 meters.

In combination with a large ballast capacity and deck strength, vessels of this type are designed for marine transportation of major modules and equipment for large energy projects both onshore and offshore.

BigRoll received the first ship from the series, BigRoll Barentsz, in April 2016.

The second ship, BigRoll Bering, was delivered to the company in June 2016 and the third ship, BigRoll Baffin, in November that year.
