Meyer Turku has awarded ALMACO Group a contract to supply galley equipment to Costa Cruises’ first LNG-powered cruise vessels.
The ‘Costa Smeralda’ will be delivered in late 2019, while a second ship follows in spring 2021.
This contract marks several important milestones for ALMACO, the company said, including the return to the Turku shipyard under the Meyer group, the first newbuilding galley contract with Costa Cruises and the group’s largest galley equipment order.
The company has also invested in a local project management team to secure long-term support at the Meyer Turku shipyard.
Bjorn Stenwall, president of ALMACO’s Catering Systems Division, said: “Under the Meyer brand, the Turku shipyard has achieved a record orderbook and ALMACO is proud to be part of it. We look forward to working on these environmentally-friendly and technically-advanced vessels. They are true next generation vessels and ALMACO’s technology and knowhow will help bring them together.”
