Atlas Wins $10.8 Million Contract For Main Galleys On Carnival Superliners

Atlas Marine Services, Inc. of Miami, Fla., has been awarded a $ 10.8 million contract by Kvaerner Masa-Yards of Helsinki, Finland to deliver the main galleys aboard Carnival Cruise Lines' latest 70,000-ton superliners M/S Sensation and M/S Fascination. Atlas will manufacture all of the custom stainless steel galley equipment and supply cooking and dishwashing equipment for each of these ships.

According to Atlas's managing director Michael J. Cassaras, this is the first time a U.S. company has been awarded the turnkey main galley contract for a cruise ship built outside the U.S.

Atlas's subcontractor in Finland, AP-Putki, an independent unit of the AP-Group, will build the galleys from the foundations inward and install equipment provided by Atlas.

Carnival and the majority of other cruise lines are based in the greater Miami area. Atlas's proximity makes it easy for their personnel to work with the Atlas team throughout a project. Atlas worked with Carnival staff during the design phase of the Fantasy's main galley and provided custom stainless steel equipment for the Fantasy and Ecstasy, Carnival's newest superliners.

AP-Putki completed the main galley installation aboard the Fantasy and built the entire main galley on the Ecstasy. Anna Maija Saarnio, Atlas's sales representative in Finland who coordinated food service equipment installation aboard the Fantasy and Ecstasy, will coordinate installation efforts on the new ships.

Atlas Marine Services Inc. specializes in the design and manufacture of food service equipment for maritime use. Its service includes working with customers to help them select the best outside vendors' equipment for a project.

Atlas field service teams travel worldwide to perform repairs and renovations. Shipyards and vendors located outside the U.S. use Atlas extensively to perform guarantee work aboard ships.
