THE PROJECT

AENA Aeropuertos, the world’s leading airport operator in terms of passenger numbers chose ADELTE to supply its new generation Apron Drive PBBs in Valencia (Spain), where the number of annual travelers is expected to increase from 7 to 15 million over the next few years. The PBBs are successfully operating at gates E16 and F17.

TECHNICAL FEATURES

ADELTE’s PBBs operating in Valencia are glass-sided units with two crescent sections and use an electromechanical lifting and traction mechanism. According to AENA’s requirements, their specific operating length ranges from 26.75m to 43.25m with a docking height of 1.88m to 5.30m. ADELTE’s new Rooftop air conditioner units guarantee the ideal temperature inside the tunnels, ensuring maximum comfort for travelers at all times. In addition, each PBB is equipped with ADELTE’s advanced Ground Support Equipment (GSE) designed to significantly enhance operational performance on the ramp and around the Passenger Boarding Bridge.
