Comfortable Living Spaces: Promoting Rest and Relaxation

Living and working offshore can be challenging, with workers often spending long hours in harsh environments. That is why we have designed our offshore accommodation solutions to provide safe, comfortable, and welcoming living spaces that promote rest and relaxation.
Our solutions incorporate ergonomic furniture, soundproofing, and state-of-the-art HVAC systems, which help to reduce stress and fatigue for offshore workers. The cabins are spacious, with ample storage and living space, which provides workers with a comfortable environment to rest and recharge after a long day. Special emphasis is given to welfare facilities, ensuring workers have adequate amenities to relax during their down time.

Safe Living Spaces: Meeting the Highest Safety Standards

Safety is our top priority in offshore facilities, which are exposed to a range of risks, including fire and other emergencies. Our offshore accommodation solutions prioritize worker safety by meeting the highest safety standards.

Remote Monitoring and Digitalization: Enhancing Efficiency and Safety

Many offshore facilities are already monitoring their systems remotely and collecting data from processes and machinery. At ALMACO, we recognize the importance of data in enhancing the efficiency and safety of offshore facilities. That’s why we’ve digitalized both the accommodation and catering areas to ensure that owners receive good information.
Our digitalization efforts allow us to optimize the use of resources and minimize waste while providing our clients with real-time information on system performance. This information allows for faster decision-making and enhanced safety, as potential issues can be identified and addressed promptly.

Modularity: Flexible Solutions for Efficient Emergency Response

Another key feature of our offshore accommodation solutions is modularity. Our solutions are designed to be easily installed, moved, or removed as needed, which allows for a faster and more efficient response to emergencies. This feature reduces the risk of injury or damage to assets in case of an emergency.

Mobile Cabin Factory: Efficient and Environmentally Friendly

We are also proud to offer a unique service: our mobile cabin factory. This factory allows us to build modular cabins on-site, reducing transportation costs and environmental impact. By producing cabins near the installation site, we minimize transportation, organization, logistic costs and reduce carbon emissions.

Synergies from the Cruise Industry: Applying Knowledge to Offshore Accommodations

As experts in both offshore accommodations and the cruise industry, we get synergies from the latter and apply that knowledge to our offshore accommodations. Our experience in designing and building high-quality living spaces for cruise passengers translates into expertise in creating comfortable and safe living spaces for offshore workers. This synergy allows us to stay at the forefront of the latest technologies and trends, ensuring that our offshore accommodation solutions are always at the cutting edge.


At ALMACO Group, we provide safe and comfortable living spaces for offshore workers. Our solutions prioritize worker safety and enhance their comfort, promoting rest, relaxation, and wellbeing. The modularity feature ensures flexibility for efficient emergency response, while our mobile cabin factory offers a unique and environmentally friendly service.
