ALMACO has supplied the galley equipment and provision stores fitted on board Hurtigruten’s new hybrid-powered expedition ship ‘Roald Amundsen’.
One of ALMACO’s strengths is being involved in the early stages of the project and working side by side with the key stakeholders to develop the most efficient and suitable catering space for the project, the company said.
Accordingly, the company was involved in the pre-contractual design services for the vessels in co-operation with Hurtigruten and Kleven Verft.
Björn Stenwall (pictured), President of ALMACO’s Catering Systems Division, said “This contract is a milestone for our company, as it will be ALMACO’s first newbuilding catering project in Norway and our first project with Kleven Maritime Group.”
“We’re delighted to be part of this project, as it brings to life Hurtigruten’s strategy that invokes a global approach and expansion with a strong Norwegian heritage, offering a relaxed and high-end cruise experience while remaining true to the region’s seafaring tradition,” he said.
