RollDock Shipping B.V. (part of the Roll Group) confirmed the purchase of their 7th vessel, the MV RollDock Sky. This is the third semi-submersible multipurpose heavy lift vessel bought from Larsen & Toubro India. She will go directly into service after some upgrades.

The MV RollDock Sky

After RollDock and L&T ended their cooperation in 2013, L&T continued building a third semi-submersible multipurpose heavy lift vessel. During visits to the L&T yard by RollDock staff, RollDock was impressed by the quality and progress. Despite moderate market conditions, the Management, Supervisory Board and Shareholders decided to purchase the vessel and to name her MV RollDock Sky. The MV RollDock Sky is a sister vessel to MV RollDock Sun and MV RollDock Sea.

Two Additional Vessels

Furthermore, RollDock has two vessels under construction which will take the fleet up to 7 vessels within the next 12 months. In cooperation with BigLift, BigRoll Shipping was founded and 4 open wide deck ice class vessels were ordered at the COSCO Shipyard Dalian. The first MC Class vessel is nearing her completion and she will soon enter into service for BigRoll Shipping.

“We are very proud that despite the unfavorable economic times, we are still able to maintain the growth strategy of our business” said CEO Roll Group.
