The Heavy Transport vessels BigLift Barentsz and BigLift Baffin are two identical, state of the art Module Carriers. With their large deck they offer capabilities for ro-ro cargoes up to about 16.000 mt a piece.
With Finnish Swedish 1A Ice class the vessels are specifically designed to operate in remote and inaccessible areas.
Their slender bow shape and PSMR Class notation have proved to be greatly advantageous by ensuring excellent service speed due to low resistance and less wave impacts. This makes for shorter transit times and greater reliability. Furthermore, the bow shape leads to lower accelerations in longitudinal direction and, because of the redundancy in machinery, heading control can be applied to reduce design accelerations.
The 125 x 42 metre deck is completely flush, without any air heads or overflow pipes and the high ballast capacity significantly reduces the loading and discharging times of the vessel. The vessels are prepared for dynamic positioning, which provides unique opportunities for offshore transportation and installation services.
