ALMACO Group to Deliver Galley Equipment on Costa Cruises’ Vessels at Meyer Turku
Meyer Turku has awarded ALMACO Group the contract to supply galley equipment to Costa Cruises’ first LNG-powered cruise vessels. The ships are expected to be delivered in October 2019 and spring 2021.
This contract marks several important milestones for the company, including the return to the Turku shipyard under the Meyer group, the first newbuilding galley contract with Costa Cruises and the largest galley equipment order for ALMACO Group.
ALMACO worked closely with both Meyer Turku and Costa Cruises to reach the highest-quality yet most cost-effective technical solutions. ALMACO’s optimized design and production processes as well as a new tailor-made equipment factory allowed to lower the cost while keeping the top quality level the company is known for.
Given the closeness of the shipyard and ALMACO’s largest office in Turku, the company has invested in local project management to secure long-term support to the organization at the Meyer Turku shipyard. ALMACO has a similar organization to support the company’s work at the Papenburg yard and this contract further enhances our strong relationship with the Meyer Group.
Bjorn Stenwall, ALMACO’s Marine Division President, states “Under the Meyer brand, the Turku shipyard has achieved a record order book and ALMACO is proud to be part of it. We look forward to working on these environmentally friendly and technically advanced vessels. They are true next generation vessels and ALMACO’s technology and know-how will help bring them together.”
