ALMACO Group was awarded the new building contract from Keppel FELS for Modular Cabins and Public Spaces on board Floatel International’s Floatel Endurance. The scope includes four accommodation decks and three public area decks, with a total of 440 single-bed, NORSOK-compliant modular cabins and 1,500 square meters of public areas such as corridors, lounges, offices, messes and others. The expected delivery is Q1 2015 and works will be carried out in Singapore.
ALMACO’s contract with Keppel FELS encompasses detail design and engineering for all the interior, interior linings for public areas and corridors, insulation, installation of windows on the structure and all interior outfitting works, installation of the complete galley and laundry, and material supply and installation for the modular cabins and public areas.
With this project, ALMACO’s position as preferred EPC in the offshore market is strengthened as it highlights ALMACO’s global capabilities to carry out extensive projects in Europe, Asia and the Americas.
ALMACO Group’s cooperation with Keppel FELS and Floatel International started in 2008 when ALMACO was contracted to build 440 single-bed NORSOK-compliant cabins, 1,500 square meters of public areas and all food handling areas on board Floatel Superior, which was delivered to the owner in 2010.
