TEAM Ports & Maritime wins New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) & Turner Construction Corporation contract.

The contract is for the design, manufacture, assemble, transport and installation of two HYDRA Passenger Boarding Bridges (PBBs) at the Manhattan Cruise Terminal in New York.

The PBBs will provide seamless access for cruise guests from cruise terminal building to NCL’s Breakaway and vice versa. The NCL Breakaway will start turnaround operations in New York as of May 2013.

With these PBBs the Manhattan Cruise Terminal is equipped to fully service the embarkation and disembarkation of cruise guests to any new generation mega cruise ship with overhanging life boats.

The two PBBs will be designed and manufactured in Spain. Assembly of the PBBs will take place in the Port of Barcelona, from where they will be placed on a ship and transported to the Manhattan Cruise Terminal in New York.
