ALMACO has also delivered food handling systems to the previous three AIDA newbuilds and is contracted to work on the next two newbuilds, due in 2011 and 2012.
The six-ship order encompassed the supply and installation of galleys, pantries and provisions stores. The galleys and pantries occupy a total area of 2,000sq mtr and comprise three big galley areas and 24 pantries for bars and cabin service for passengers and crew. ALMACO's scope also included the supply and installation of foundations and stainless steel ceiling and wall panels on a complete-system basis, in accordance with USPH policies.
Additionally, ALMACO supplied 34 provision stores including walk-ins and dry stores on board each ship, occupying a floor area of 950sq mtr. When necessary, fire hinged or sliding doors were fitted to the stores. These insulated doors comply with fire and insulation requirements in a single unit, eliminating the need to fit two adjacent doors to provide fire protection and temperature insulation, ALMACO said.
