ALMACO completed Galley modernization project onboard Azamara Onward

Posted on June 8, 2022

In February 2022, Azamara, VSHIPS, and Damen Shipyard awarded ALMACO the contract to modernize several galley areas onboard Azamara Onward. The modernization project was done and delivered in May 2022.

Currently, Azamara operates four ships and Azamara Onward is the fourth one in the fleet. This modernization project took place at the Damen shipyard in the Netherlands. ALMACO’s work onboard consisted of modernizing 11 galley areas on different decks. The galleys which ALMACO worked on were on decks 3,4,9 and 10. 

Eric Guiot, ALMACO’s Project Manager, says “It has been a joy to collaborate with Azamara, VSHIPS, and Damen Shipyard on this project, together we have been able to complete the project on time and deliver products of the highest standard. We hope to be able to work together on future projects soon again.”
