THE PROJECT

Venezia Terminal Passeggeri S.p.A initiated in 2008 the construction of a new cruise terminal building on the Isonzo quay, projected to be operational in March 2009. This new terminal building is part of the expansion and modernization process of the cruise facilities at the Port of Venice. ADELTE received in April 2008 the order to deliver a PBB of the HYDRA range, similar to the PBB installed earlier that year on the Tagliamento quay.

TECHNICAL FEATURES

Single structure movable passenger boarding bridge configured parallel to the ship. Includes glass mounted tunnels, either in a U or Z shape, allowing access from a terminal to a vessel (and vice versa) and equipped with lifting frames which allow the cabin to service various heights and horizontal locations of ship doors whilst maintaining the inclination of the tunnels within the established range. The clearance under the passenger boarding bridge will allow for continuous truck, equipment and supplies traffic on the quayside. The boarding bridge moves along the wharf by means of rails and solid bogies, can serve any cruise ship calling on the port and is compliant with international safety and security standards.
