The BigRoll Barentsz is the first of two MC class module carriers for BigRoll shipping. Once complete, the vessel will be used to transport large and heavy modular cargoes.

BigRoll Shipping said that the first steel has been cut for its BigRoll Barentsz heavy transport ship at the Cosco Dalian shipyard in China.

The BigRoll Barentsz is the first of two MC class module carriers for Netherlands-based BigRoll shipping. It will transport large and heavy modular cargoes.

The vessel will have Finnish Swedish 1A ice class notation for use in the Arctic and deadweight of 21,000 tonnes. Deck space will be 42 by 125 m.

BigRoll Barentsz is due to be delivered in 2015. A sister vessel, BigRoll Bering will follow in October 2015.
