This was a contract milestone for the company as it was Almaco’s first newbuild catering project in Norway and the company’s first project with Kleven Maritime Group: Björn Stenwall, president of Almaco’s catering systems division, is pleased with the opportunity: ‘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.’
