The first MC-class vessel has been handed over by its builder, Cosco Dalian Shipyard, to her Dutch owner, BigRoll Shipping.
The 173-metre Finnish Swedish 1A Ice Class MC-class vessels are designed for the marine transportation of major modules and equipment for large energy projects both on and offshore.
The vessel 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 Yamal project is a liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant positioned deep in the Russian Arctic.
The region is completely ice-bound for between seven and nine months each year, and where the sun fails to rise above the horizon for up to three months at a time.
The vessel has the ability to operate in temperatures as low as -55°C.
BigRoll Shipping has ordered a further three MC-class module carriers, ‘BigRoll Bering’, ‘BigRoll Baffin’ and ‘BigRoll Beaufort’.
