In October, 2023, ALMACO delivered a project for the newbuilding ‘Carnival Jubilee’ at MEYER WERFT in Papenburg.

The catering project consisted of a full turnkey delivery of all the ship’s provision stores.

In addition, in December, a second project saw ALMACO support the shipyard with personnel for the fitting of fixed furniture installations in over 1,000 cabins.

MEYER WERFT and Carnival Cruises (CCL) chose ALMACO to plan, design, build, supply and commission all the provision areas on board ‘Carnival Jubilee’.

Frédéric Vasseur, President of ALMACO’s Catering division (pictured), said, “The provision stores comply with the strictest USPH sanitation and safety requirements. The system is also highly efficient and has a patented door solution that has been developed together with a preferred partner of ALMACO.”

In May, 2023, a team of 26 skilled carpenters and electricians was contracted by MEYER GROUP to support the shipyard with catch-up work in the accommodation areas.

The team mobilised and boarded the ship in only two weeks and achieved an impressive installation speed of 15 cabins per day. The project was later extended beyond furniture to include air supply connections, additional electrical work, ceiling enhancements, and cabin finishings.

With a workforce of at most 55 individuals, including a site manager and an electrical supervisor, ALMACO ensured the project’s smooth execution.

Jean-Pierre Lepage, ALMACO’s Vice President of Accommodation Modernisations, said: “Our team’s commitment allowed us to meet our targets. The completion of this project underscores ALMACO’s dedication to delivering quality solutions and agility to mobilise a large site team in a very short time.”

Lepage added: “The synergy between ALMACO, MEYER GROUP and EMS Precab was instrumental in the project’s success. The effort put forth by our team, combined with the shipyard’s and our partners’ support, has resulted in an end-result we can all be proud of.”
