Chantiers de l’Atlantique selects ALMACO for Royal Caribbean international turnkey project

Posted on March 27, 2022

In March 2021, Chantiers de L’Atlantique awarded ALMACO the contract to deliver provision plant refrigeration machinery to Royal Caribbean Cruise Line’s vessels Hull A35 as a project including engineering, supply, and commissioning.

The project, owned by Royal, consists of the newbuilding of two additional cruise vessels for the Oasis Class series that sail the Caribbean and Mediterranean waters. The construction was initialized in the fourth quarter of 2021 at the shipyard Chantiers De l’Atlantique, starting with vessel A35 – Oasis class vessel #6. 

Frédéric Vasseur, President of the Catering Division at ALMACO, says “This is the largest provision plant refrigeration machinery order in ALMACO’s history, so it’s needless to say that we are thrilled and honored to have been chosen as the turnkey provider by Chantiers De l’Atlantique. We have worked with Chantiers de L’Atlantique on many successful projects throughout the years and we are looking forward to continuing the cooperation with this project.”  

The two vessels are expected to be delivered in May 2024 and June 2026 to the owner.
