THE PROJECT

In Valencia, extra passenger traffic was expected in the summer of 2007 for the 32nd America's Cup. Spain's largest ferry operator Acciona Trasmediterranea therefore had its passenger terminal remodelled and included the installation of an additional modern passenger boarding bridge. Following previous successful installations, ADELTE was contracted to deliver a boarding bridge which can service Acciona's vessels and cruise ships calling into the port.

TECHNICAL FEATURES

Single structure passenger boarding bridge with glass mounted tunnels and an electromechanical elevation system. The docking ramps are hydraulic and the cabins are fixed. The bridge is PLC controlled and specially designed to serve a wide variety of ships. The bridge uses an electromechanical elevation system and its bogies slide along rails in the quay.
