MAVCO Awarded Contract

Wednesday, October 24, 2001
MAVCO has been awarded the contract to design, supply and install a range of audio, video, lighting and effect systems in over twenty venues on board a third Crystal Cruises ship. Commissioned by ALSTOM Marine Chantiers de l’Antantique shipyard in St. Nazaire, France, MAVCO will be involved with the complete contract for local entertainment systems. Scheduled for delivery in late June 2003, the unnamed 68,000-ton vessel will see an increased number of Crystal Cruises’ most successful features, including more entertainment lounges, expanding on the best of Crystal Harmony and Crystal Symphony. The scope of the project ahead for MAVCO incorporates detailed system design, supply, installation and commissioning shared between the company’s offices in Miami and the U.K.

The Galaxy Show Lounge is the main entertainment venue for the line’s distinctive production shows, featuring more intimate seating arrangements, improved sight lines and the latest technology in sound and lighting systems. This includes a fully automated digital mixing console, 1,500 channels lighting console, extensive video systems and complete show control facilities, all installed by MAVCO.

MAVCO will also be installing equipment in the contemporary renditions of Crystal guests’ public rooms, including the Palm Court and adjacent Vista Lounge, Avenue Saloon Piano Bar and Connoisseur Club Cigar Bar. MAVCO will be providing video systems for the enlarged Computer University@ classroom, as well as audio and video systems for the spa and gym, which will be expanded by approximately 40 percent.
