Adelte, a designer and manufacturer of sophisticated Seaport Passenger Boarding Bridges (SPBBs) for cruise and ferry terminals has recently won eight contracts for the supply in 2014 of a total of eleven tailor-made SPBBs to the ports of Rotterdam, Stornoway, Swinoujscie and Ullapool in Northern Europe, Denia and Savona in Southern Europe and Busan and Singapore in Asia.

 


Rotterdam – The Netherlands
Adelte has been awarded a contract by the Rotterdam Port Authority to install this summer a new KRONUS SPBB, which will replace the current system. Rotterdam is increasingly gaining importance as a popular home port and port of call. In view of this, as well as of the arrival of the Oasis of the Seas in September this year, the port is renovating its cruise terminal facilities to offer the maximum security and comfort for its cruise guests. A short delivery term, superior design and technology and an excellent service were key factors for winning this contract.



Stornoway and Ullapool – United Kingdom
Adelte has won two contracts for THALASSA SPBB installations in Scotland. This summer Caledonian MacBrayne will place a new ferry, the Loch Seaforth, into operation for the crossing between Ullapool on the mainland and Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis. To facilitate smooth, safe and secure operations, the terminal installations at both harbours are being upgraded. Adelte received a contract from Caledonian Maritime Assets Limited (CMAL) and Ullapool Harbour Trust to deliver a THALASSA SPBB at the ferry terminal in Ullapool Harbour, and from construction company BAM Nuttall a contract to deliver a similar, but larger system at the ferry terminal in Stornoway. The THALASSA boarding bridges will have the ability to serve at dock level, absorb big tidal variations and operate with very strong service winds. Ullapool unit will be equipped with a wind turbine which supplies energy to the outer lights. Adelte has currently a total of eight boarding bridge installations in the United Kingdom, in operation at the cruise and ferry passenger terminals of Harwich, Portsmouth and Southampton.



Swinoujscie - Poland
Adelte has been contracted by Polish construction company BUDIMEX to deliver in autumn a HYDRA SPBB on the new ferry berth at the port of Swinoujscie. The SPBB will serve ferries which sail to the port of Ystad in Sweden of up to 220 m in length and ensure total comfort and safety for passengers.
 


Savona - Italy
Adelte received an order from Costa Crociere to install a new HYDRA SPBB at the new cruise terminal, currently in construction, of the Italian port of Savona. Costa relies more than a decade on Adelte’s expertise and state-of-the-art technology for its cruise terminals in Spain and Italy. The first SPBB contract for a Costa cruise terminal was signed in 2002 when two PEGASUS PBBs needed to be installed in Savona.



Denia - Spain
The Spanish ferry company Balearia very recently contracted Adelte to deliver a PEGASUS SPBB at their new ferry terminal facilities in the port of Denia. The new SPBB will connect with a fixed elevated walkway leading to the ferry terminal. Balearia’s ferry vessels sail from Denia on the Spanish mainland to the Balearic Islands of Ibiza, Mallorca and Formentera. Balearia has previously contracted Adelte for SPBB installations in the port of Barcelona.



Singapore
SATS – CREUERS commissioned Adelte to design, manufacture, transport and install a fourth SEDNA SPBB at Singapore's Marina Bay Cruise Terminal. This SPBB, scheduled to be delivered in the last quarter of 2014, will be added to the other three SEDNA units which were installed in 2012.



Busan – South Korea

Adelte will design four new KRONUS SPBBs, to be commissioned by the Busan Port Authority. These telescopic bridges are similar to the Apron Drive systems used in airports, which offer a great range of services. They are moveable and allow elevation and radial drive. Equipped with Adelte’s sophisticated docking cabin, capable of following ship movements, as well as with the latest technologies, Busan’s new ferry terminal will guarantee the best embarking and disembarking experience for all passengers. The four SPBBs, equipped with air conditioning systems, will be delivered and assembled at the same time.
 


In addition to the fore mentioned contracts for the delivery of SPBBS, Adelte’s Global Services team has also secured annual maintenance services contracts for the Adelte boarding bridges at the Kai Tak Cruise Terminal in Hong Kong, the Marina Bay Cruise Center in Singapore, the Cruise Center II in Hamburg, the Ostseekai and Schwedenkai terminals in Kiel, the Cruise Terminal in Rotterdam, the Half Moon Cruise Center in Norfolk and all the cruise terminals in Barcelona. Furthermore, the Global Services team is also contracted to provide maintenance services for all boarding bridges, not manufactured by Adelte, at the cruise and ferry terminals in the port of Genoa.
