Hopeman Bros. To Supply Joiner Systems For Viking Serenade Project

Southwest Marine, Inc., San Diego, Calif., has selected Hopeman Brothers, Inc., Waynesboro, Va., as a subcontractor on the $75-million, 13-week conversion of Royal Caribbean Cruise Line's Viking Serenade.

As a subcontractor on the huge conversion project, Hopeman Brothers will complete the installation of the joiner systems in the public spaces aboard the cruise ship.

Using both traditional U.S. suppliers and European sources, Hopeman Brothers will provide installation of quality materials. In addition, experienced Hopeman Brothers crews will ensure that the installation is performed rapidly.

The Viking Serenade is scheduled to enter Southwest Marine's San Diego facility on January 27, 1991, where she will undergo major structural modifications, with the addition of 296 staterooms and alteration of her public spaces to accommodate the increased passenger capacity.

When she leaves the yard on April 29, the Viking Serenade will have a passenger capacity of about 1,500.

The pretigious project was won against international competition and is the largest conversion ever undertaken in the U.S.
