Bibby Renaissance Delivered

Thursday, July 16, 2009

ALMACO delivered the 336-cabin accommodation vessel Bibby Renaissance to Bibby Maritime Ltd. ALMACO Group provided a total turnkey package to Bibby Renaissance which incorporated structural construction as well as the total outfitting of the vessel with accommodations, food handling, and additional Systems.

The project involved widening the vessel, originally an empty steel pontoon, by approximately 18 ft. The existing top-side accommodation structure was split longitudinally in half, leaving the port-side part of the structure in its existing place. The starboard-side of the structure was relocated over the extended hull section on the starboard-side, allowing an area in between the top-side structures where light wells were created. The total quantity of new steel installed was over 730 tons.

The project also involved interior outfitting with accommodations, food handling and several other systems. The vessel was outfitted with 336 modular cabins with en-suite facilities, for which Huanan Building Materials (Shenzhen) was our partner supplier. The project also included public rooms such as restaurant, mess room; bar, provision stores, and galley; passenger and service elevators; as well as an HVAC system to suit worldwide trading. The unit was additionally fitted with adequately-sized generator sets with redundancy, sewage treatment plant, hot and cold domestic water systems, ballast and bilge systems, fire detection, and sprinkler and alarm systems.

ALMACO provided the complete design for the project. ALMACO's Finland office supplied the design for the cabins and public spaces, and ALMACO's France office provided the design for the provision stores and galley. ALMACO's partner on the engineering side, Foreship, was closely involved in the feasibility phase of the project and handled the basic design and a large part of the detail design.

ALMACO's project organization comprised 50 people, with the project management team located onsite at ALMACO's partner yard Yiu Lian Dockyards in China. The Coastel Bibby Renaissance was delivered to Bibby Maritime Ltd. in May 2009 and is currently in Malaysia.
