Modernization projects done the ALMACO way
Tight, sometimes nearly impossible, schedules with no margin for error. Tricky logistics. Work locations often experiencing severe weather. While they might be smaller than newbuilding projects in terms of sheer size of investment, large modernization projects are among the most challenging projects in the marine industry. As they run deep in our history, modernization projects are an integral part of our heart and DNA.
No matter how large or small, ALMACO can help with the entire modernization process, starting from the design and planning phase to reducing the amount of inhouse personnel or 3rd party designers and consultants the shipowner needs. When it comes to modernization projects, we can handle it all, offering both a larger portfolio of areas and delivery scope than anyone else.
We will always go the extra mile to ensure that any project will be ready on-time, on-budget and within the quality level our customers have come to expect from us in the past 22 years. If getting the work done on time means chartering not just one, but two 747-8 cargo planes, we will do it. With projects delivered from the Bahamas to Norway, Canada to the Philippines, we can deliver projects with the highest standards anywhere in the world. ALMACO can help in making the impossible happen.
