TEAM was recently contracted by Singapore Tourism Board (STB) to design, manufacture and deliver three Passenger Boarding Bridges for the International Cruise Terminal in Singapore, currently in construction. The contract is a result of a competitive tender process for which TEAM partnered up with leading services specialist Singapore Technologies Synthesis Pte Ltd. (ST Synthesis). The contract calls for the delivery of three PBBs in November 2011 and the option for delivery of a fourth PBB in 2012.

Singapore’s International Cruise Terminal is designed by Bermello, Ajamil and Partners and RSP Architects Planners and Engineers and the construction of the terminal is slated for completion by the end of 2011. With its deep waters, a large turning basin and lack of height restrictions, the facility will be able to berth ships of up to 220,000 GRT and measuring up to 360 meters in length with a draft of up to 11.5 meters. 

In the design parameters for the mobile PBBs set out by STB, the capability for the PBBs to service cruise ships with ship shell doors located at 7 to 18 m above water level including the world’s largest cruise ships with overhanging life boats, like Royal Caribbean’s Oasis-class ships, the Carnival Dream and the Norwegian Epic are paramount. TEAM is currently designing the PBBs which configuration is of the SEDNA range. The steel structured PBBs with an overall length of 40 meters are PLC controlled and incorporate solid rubber bogies, electro-mechanical elevation systems, glass panelled tunnel sections, non-skid flooring, air-conditioning and a cabin with a uniquely integrated telescopic docking ramp that, when attached to the side of a cruise ship automatically follows the vessel’s movements and will safely undock in the event of an emergency. The SEDNA PBBs will provide clearance for continuous truck, emergency, equipment and supplies traffic on the berths. TEAM’s PBBs will have a maximum slope of 1:12 and will strictly comply with all relevant and up-to-date Singapore and international standards and regulations for comfort, safety and security.
