Celebrity Cruises has awarded ALMACO Group the contract to build 16 new crew cabins onboard Celebrity Summit during a short March drydock at Grand Bahamas Shipyard (GBS) and continuing during sailing.

 
ALMACO’s scope of work includes demolition, complete outfitting of the GBS-provided new steel block, and delivery of 16 new crew cabins on Deck 5. The drydock period began at GBS from February 29 and is expected to conclude March 12, 2016. The works will then be finalized during the first sailing cruise that follows the drydock.
 
The project has been initiated over a relatively short timeframe from the date when the order was received, which was December 16. In order to execute the project within this timeline, both the block stage works in GBS and work onboard Celebrity Summit have started even before the vessel reached the shipyard for the February 29 drydock.
 
“ALMACO’s experienced organization and in-house capabilities in engineering, purchasing and project management in coordination with the owner’s and the yard’s project teams allow for this short turnaround.” Said Herve Touzard, Vice President After Sales for the Marine Division. “We are used to working in these tight deadlines and understand how beneficial this is to our costumers given the extensive preparation work needed for these projects and the unavoidable delays that occur.”
 
ALMACO Group said it possesses vast experience in building new crew cabins during sailing. The company has built a combined 60 cabins in separate occasions for Royal Caribbean International’s Quantum of the Seas and Anthem of the Seas this past year. Since the company’s beginning, ALMACO has built and modernized over 25,000 cabins.
