Canadian shipbuilder and industrial fabricator Davie Shipbuilding
has awarded ALMACO Group the contract for the delivery of the
superstructure of Project Resolve, a Navy AOR vessel, the first
project carried out as part of ALMACO and Davie's cooperation and
technology transfer.

The vessel's superstructure will be delivered by ALMACO as a
single structure to be integrated to the hull at the Davie
shipyard.

ALMACO's scope of work includes the full EPC (engineering,
procurement and construction) contract for the living quarter
superstructure including cabins, public areas, galley, provision
stores, wheelhouse and technical spaces.

The 2,200-ton superstructure was built in Finland and will be
shipped as one single structure to be integrated on top of the
vessel's hull by Davie. The remaining parts of the superstructure
that were not outfitted will be completed by Davie once it is
integrated to the hull.

"We are proud to be part of this project where ALMACO and Davie
will combine Finnish shipbuilding expertise with Canadian
shipbuilding capabilities to the great benefit of the vessel's
end users and to meet the timeline for the delivery of the
superstructure," said Vilhelm Roberts, ALMACO Group's President
and CEO. "ALMACO will be sharing its skills and technology in
accommodation areas with Davie's personnel as the company has a
long and successful history of providing modular prefabricated
structures and cabins around the world."

Davie Shipbuilding and ALMACO Group are planning to continue the
cooperation for potential future projects combining Canadian and
Finnish shipbuilding expertise. Each country has extensive
experience in the construction of a variety of vessels including
ocean and river cruise ships, vessels for navy applications and
demanding icebreakers.

ALMACO's concept of fabricating accommodation solutions globally
is an advantage for future projects carried out at Davie's
shipyard premises, which will strengthen the cooperation between
the companies even further. "ALMACO is looking to establish a
more permanent presence in Canada in the future by supporting
projects at Davie, with the aim of fabricating modular cabins in
Quebec in the coming years," stated Mikael Liljeström, President
of ALMACO's Offshore division.
