Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection’s new LNG-powered luxury superyachts, ‘Ilma’ and ‘Luminara’, will be equipped with ALMACO galleys, provision stores and refrigeration machinery solutions.
The installations will take place at the Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard. The vessels’ deliveries are scheduled for 2024 and 2025.
ALMACO will also provide support and lifecycle services during the vessels’ operations.
Each of the newbuildings will have a variety of dining venues. The superior dining and service level of the superyachts calls for state-of-the-art catering solutions with the latest technology and highest sustainability requirements, ALMACO claimed.
The company will be involved with a turnkey delivery of all galleys on board, as well as the entire equipment supply and installation of the galley areas, consisting of 1,200 sq m.
ALMACO will also supply and install the equipment for the provision store areas of 525 sq m and deliver the refrigeration machinery system.
Besides delivering the catering areas, systems and equipment, as per the contract, ALMACO has also included a lifecycle service agreement with The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, consisting of pre-planned maintenance and supply of a spare parts package.
Frédéric Vasseur, ALMACO’s President of Catering Systems (pictured), said, “As always, it’s an honour and pleasure to be invited to join a project by our long-term partner, Chantiers de l’Atlantique. We have a long track record of mutual successful projects, and I am confident this project will be a success too.”
“We share the same process-driven and innovative mindset and commitment to research and development. That makes working together extra inspiring,” he said.
