ALMACO completed provision store and refrigeration machinery project for Celebrity Beyond

Posted on April 30, 2022

Celebrity Cruise’s newest ship, Celebrity Beyond, has been delivered by the French shipyard Chantiers de l’Atlantique. ALMACO is proud to have been a part of this project and to have been chosen to deliver both cold rooms and the refrigeration plant onboard the ship. The ship was delivered in April 2022.

The newest addition to the Celebrity Cruises fleet, Celebrity Beyond, was delivered in April 2022. Celebrity Beyond is the third ship of the new Edge class. A fun fact about Celebrity Beyond is that it’s a bit longer compared to the previous ship, Celebrity Apex. This makes Celebrity Beyond the longest ship so far in the Edge class.

The building of the ship took place at the shipyard Chantiers de l’Atlantique in France. ALMACO’s scope of work on the ship consisted of engineering, supplying, and commissioning 1800 m² of cold rooms and dry stores, this also included technical floors where it was needed. To cool the cold rooms, ALMACO also supplied the complete refrigeration plant consisting of centralized positive and negative direct expansion units, 5 standalone units, and air coolers. The plant delivers a cooling capacity of around 360KW and each unit is redundant.

“We are excited to have been a part of this project and proud of the end-result, which is also appreciated by both Chantiers de l’Atlantique and Celebrity Cruises,” says Samuel Teyssier, ALMACO’s Project Manager. He continues “ALMACO is thankful for the cooperation, flexibility, and support that we have received from Chantiers de l’Atlantique and Celebrity Cruises.” The project was a success, and the final product is a magnificent new ship.
