Integrated Catering Management – ICM

The Integrated Catering Management, ICM, is a software/hardware application combining in a multi client and redundant computer system that incorporates the galley energy savings, the control and monitoring capabilities for refrigerated equipment, steam and water metering, as well as data retrieval from ovens and dishwashers, to allow for comprehensive management of all the catering areas.

ICM incorporates:

  • ALMACO GEM data
  • ALMACO REM data
  • Data available from Ovens and dishwashers, etc.
  • Data retrieved from water and steam flow meters installed on the piping system
  • Data from electrical power meters

The collected data allow the control and the monitoring of all catering systems, and are available and displayed by disciplines and catered to each end user.

Galley Energy Management – GEM

ALMACO’s Galley Energy Management, GEM, system allows cruise ship owners to control the energy usage in the galley areas. With our computerized system, owners can save up to 25 percent of electrical power for the cooking equipment (and more when combined with the ventilation system). The system is combined with inherently energy-efficient appliances, as is always ALMACO’s focus when selecting equipment for its customers.

GEM 2.0, the newest generation of this system, includes:

  • Up-to-date user’s friendly interface
  • Management of the on/off time slots of every piece of equipment
  • Management of the lighting on/off time
  • LEDs on equipment for crew awareness
  • Automatic and adaptive cut-off of the power of the equipment not in use
  • Remote control and monitoring
  • Maintenance milestones and tasks scheduling and follow-up
  • QR code Wi-Fi access
  • Demand Controlled ventilation by hood module or canopy.

Refrigeration Equipment Management – REM

ALMACO’s Refrigeration Equipment Monitoring, REM, provides a control system that links all refrigerators on-board, whether they are located in the galley or in other catering areas, and allows the operators to ensure that USPH required temperatures are constantly maintained. The galleys’ refrigerators are connected to ALMACO’s advanced REM system providing the same features as for the cold stores.

Some of REM’s benefits are:

  • REM saves the crew’s valuable time by making automatic the daily recording of the temperatures required by USPH
  • Galley Refrigerators Eco Mode allows up to 50% energy savings
  • All interconnected refrigerated systems settings and reports are managed with a single intuitive interface:
    • Provision Stores
    • Walk-ins
    • Galley Refrigerators
    • Refrigeration Plant Condensing Units and Chillers

Precision Air Cooler – PAC

The proprietary flat design for ALMACO’s Precision Air Cooler, PAC, solves the challenges posed by traditional cubic air coolers including hampered air flow, uneven temperatures in the room, the required large space for maintenance, the limited air circulation, among many others.

PAC has several benefits including:

  • Even air flow for even temperature throughout provision store
  • Reduced footprint and less space required for maintenance allowing for more space to store provisions
  • Less cabling
  • Energy savings

FTC main benefits are:

  • Highly extends the thawing capacity for a very reasonable investment compared to the other fast thawing cabinets available on the market
  • The performance of air blast and low pressure steam reduce the thawing time
  • Reduction by 50% of your requirement for thawing surfaces.
  • Time savings and more flexibility for the galley staff
  • The low pressure steam thaw keeps the weight of the food during thawing
  • The monitoring and core temperature management guarantees the fastest process with the highest sanitary control
