In February, ALMACO completed a catering modernisation project on board Holland America Line’s (HAL) ‘Westerdam’.

In January, ‘Westerdam’ sailed from Sydney, Australia, to Singapore for drydocking.

ALMACO was awarded the turnkey contract to modernise some galley areas during the docking. The scope of work included adding flight-type and rack-type dishwashers in the Deck 9 lido pot wash area, as well as replacing various equipment across the vessel.

To access the pot washing area, a hole needed to be cut in the bulkhead, which meant that the project also included the removal and replacement of the interior in the passenger dining room located on the other side of the bulkhead.

Herve Touzard, ALMACO’s Deputy President of the Lifecycle division (pictured), said: “The collaboration between Holland America Line and ALMACO made this project a success. The project went smoothly and according to plans. We at ALMACO would be happy to continue the collaboration and have future projects with Holland America Line.”
