THE PROJECT

MPCT upgrades their passenger access facilities at the cruise terminal on the Leon Gourret Pier and had contracted the architects of Genoabased Studio Vicini to lead this project which includes the construction of fixed elevated walkways leading from the cruise terminal building to the pier. After completion of these walkways, ADELTE installed the ordered couple of Passenger Boarding Bridges, symmetrically on the site. The boarding bridges allows embarkation and disembarkation in a secure and safe manner, unaffected by weather conditions or tidal ranges.
