Following a very successful galley refit onboard RFA Mounts Bay during the summer of 2020 IDL were awarded the galley and scullery refit onboard RFA Argus during the first quarter of 2021 by A&P Falmouth Ltd.
RFA Argus has been based and maintained at A&P Falmouth for over 40 years
The principal role of RFA Argus is to serve as a Primary Casualty Receiving Ship. She has a fully equipped 100-bed medical complex on board, which includes an emergency department, resuscitation and surgical facilities, and a radiology suite complete with a CT scanner.
Although some of the peripheral fabricated equipment in the galley and 3 scullery areas were kept IDL supplied and installed all of the new catering equipment including:
MKN Flexi-Combi Ovens, MKN Fryers, MKN Bratt Pans, MKN Galley Ranges, & Boiling pans to the central cooking island as well as installing a new distribution panel for local isolation of the cooking equipment.
We installed 4 new deck baking ovens from Caterbake, 2 x Hobart Mixers, 1 x Metcalfe Slicer and 4 x Electrolux Hood Dishwashers with IMC waste Disposers in the existing dirties tabling.
All the refrigerated units, including Thaw, blast and refrigerated cabinets were replaced using both Williams & Foster units.
This project was completed on time and in budget ready for the vessel to go back to sea and into normal operations.
