ALMACO Group has won a double digit mill euro contract to outfit the cabins and public areas of Dream Cruises ‘Global Class’ ships under construction MV WERFTEN Wismar shipyard.
The vessels are due to be completed in 2020 and 2021, respectively.
In one of ALMACO’s largest contracts to date, the company will install almost 1,000 crew and passenger cabins produced by MV WERFTEN, as well as various crew and public areas and stairwells.
The total background and interior outfitting areas total more that 40,000 sq m.
The work is scheduled to start immediately at Wismar and Warnemünde, where ALMACO will produce and install the suites as well as the yard-produced cabins.
Jussi Laimi, Vice President Sales for ALMACO’s Accommodation Systems division, said; “ALMACO’s extensive expertise in delivering high-quality cabins in the marine and offshore industries, surpassing 25,000 cabins and public spaces built and modernised since the company’s beginning, makes us well suited for this scale of a project.”
“We are proud to continue our partnership with Genting Group and honoured to maintain the company’s trust in our quality and performance for so many years,” Esko Karvonen, ALMACO’s President and CEO, said. “ALMACO has been a close partner of the Genting Group supporting all the brands throughout the last 20 years.
“ALMACO has been involved in the modernisation and newbuilding of galleys and cabins on the Star Cruises fleet, on both Dream Cruises newbuilds, as well as on recently delivered Crystal Cruises’river ships, strengthening the partnership even further with this latest contract award,” he said.
