ALMACO finishes catering modernization project onboard Westerdam


Posted on March 15, 2023

ALMACO finished a catering modernization project onboard Westerdam, which is owned by Holland America Line. The work was delivered in February 2023.

The vessel Westerdam is a part of the Holland America Line fleet that also include her sister ships are Oosterdam, Zuiderdam, and Noordam. In January, Westerdam set sail from Sydney, Australia, to Singapore for a drydock. ALMACO had been awarded the turnkey contract to modernize some galley areas during the drydock. The scope of work included adding flight-type and rack-type dishwashers in the deck 9 lido pot wash area as well as replacing various equipment across the vessel. To access the pot washing area, a hole needed to be cut in the bulkhead, which meant that the project also consisted of the removal and replacement of the interior in the passenger dining room located on the other side of the bulkhead.

Herve Touzard, ALMACO’s Deputy President of the Lifecycle division says: “The collaboration between Holland America Line and ALMACO made this project a success. The project went smoothly and according to plans. We at ALMACO would be happy to continue the collaboration and have future projects with Holland America Line.”
