Chantiers de l'Atlantique chooses ALMACO for Flotlog visual turnkey project
In September 2020, Chantiers de L’Atlantique awarded ALMACO the contract to deliver cold stores, galleys, and laundry areas for the FLOTLOG fleet supply vessels of the "Jacques Chevallier" class as a visual turnkey project including supply and installation.
The FLOTLOG project, managed by OCCAR (Organisation for Joint Armament Co-operation) on behalf of the French Armament General Directorate (DGA), consists of the newbuilding of four fleet supply vessels for the French Navy. The construction has been initiated in May 2020 at the shipyard of Chantiers De l’Atlantique, starting with the BRF (Batiment Ravitailleur de Forces) "Jacques Chevallier".
Chantiers De l’Atlantique contracted ALMACO to supply and install provision stores, galleys, and laundry solutions for all four hulls, resulting in an area of 1037 m2. Joseph Kerebel, VP for Special Catering Projects at ALMACO, says “We are very honoured to have been chosen as the turnkey provider for this project by Chantiers De l’Atlantique. We have a long history of completing successful projects together and I have no doubt this project will be a success as well. This is the first time ALMACO provides navy vessels with laundry solutions, so we are especially thrilled to get this opportunity."
The four 194 meter long support ships will be delivered between 2022 and 2029 to the French Navy.
