Vessels with the required specifications
With an innovative fleet of vessels, BigRoll transports the world’s most heavy and large modules. The unique specifications of our Module Carriers offer solutions for onshore and offshore heavy transport projects. Vessels which are equipped with DP2 and ice classed certificated are often of unprecedented importance in such projects. The BigRoll vessels have already undertaken a number of challenging voyages.
The BigRoll vessels are characterized by their complete flush deck and high ballast capacity. Discover our two types of BigRoll vessels.
The Module Carriers are specially designed to deliver heavy, large modules. But these vessels can also safely transport many other cargo types.
The projects carried out by BigRoll appeal to the imagination because of the oversized cargo. Stay informed about the sailings of the BigRoll vessels.
