ALMACO Group has completed the delivery of galleys and provision stores for Silversea’s ‘Silver Nova’, the 11th ship in the ultra-luxury travel brand’s fleet.
The delivery was made on 4th July, 2023, as a visual turnkey project, which included pre-development, design, supply, construction and commissioning.
‘Silver Nova’s’ innovative asymmetrical design offers an immersive destination experience to up to 728 guests. She is also one of the most environmentally conscious ultra-luxury ships ever built, thanks to her groundbreaking technological solutions.
ALMACO’s galleys and provision stores are designed to match the high standards of quality and sustainability that ‘Silver Nova’ represents, the company claimed.
The galleys are equipped with appliances and systems that ensure optimal performance, energy efficiency and hygiene, according to USPH standards. The provision stores are customised to meet the specific needs of each restaurant and bar on board, providing ample storage space and optimal preservation conditions for food and beverages.
“We are very proud to be part of this remarkable project and to deliver our catering solutions for ‘Silver Nova’, one of the most spacious and sustainable cruise ships ever built. Our galleys and provision stores are tailored to enhance the gastronomic experience on board, while making the catering areas a functional and ergonomic workspace for the galley crew,” said Frédéric Vasseur, President of the Catering Systems division at ALMACO.
The galleys and provision stores’ deliveries to the ship were carried out in close collaboration with shipbuilder MEYER WERFT. ALMACO and MEYER WERFT have a partnership that spans over two decades and includes several projects.
“We are very grateful to MEYER WERFT for their trust and co-operation throughout this project. As always, we have worked together as one team to achieve a great result,” added Eric Guiot, Project Manager at ALMACO.
‘Silver Nova’ offers guests features, such as floor-to-ceiling windows with private glass balconies in every suite, nine dining options and 10 bars and lounges, a wellness centre with an indoor pool and spa, and a SALT programme that allows guests to explore the local food culture on board and ashore.
