Thanks to Solar Solve Marine’s Rotterdam based World Wide Distributor, the crew serving on board BIGROLL BERING can get a good sleep at any time of the day or night as they are now able to benefit from the installation of 29 ROLASOLV® Type Approved Blackout blinds that have been installed at windows in the accommodation areas of the vessel.
This vessel is the second in a series of four Module Carriers built at Cosco Dalian Shipyard in China for BigRoll Shipping, the Dutch heavy marine transportation provider. The company has already taken delivery of one vessel, the BigRoll Barentsz and directly after delivery from the yard, these first two vessels entered 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 Finnish-Swedish 1A Ice Class MC Class is specifically designed for the marine transportation of major modules and equipment for large energy projects both onshore and offshore to remote areas and initially BIGROLL BERING will be transporting Yamal LNG modules directly from the fabrication yard in China to the Yamal project site in Sabetta, Russia.
All of the vessels are identical in design with 173 meters in length, 42 meters in breadth, accommodation for 60 people, a maximum speed of 15 knots, and can handle a load of 20 tonnes per square meter of deck space.
Paul Hopkins, Solar Solve Marine’s Marketing Executive commented, “Although the blinds will be used to darken accommodation areas, they are white in colour to match in with the rest of the décor and all of the components meet with the strict safety requirements that go to make up the final specifications that they have to attain to achieve Type Approved status, which is vital for such products that are installed on vessels at sea.
