THE PROJECT

The Canaveral Port Authority selected ADELTE to design, manufacture and install two custom-made HYDRA models Seaport Passenger Boarding Bridges at Cruise Terminal 10. In order to provide first-class infrastructure and follow-up with the opening of Cruise Terminal 6 in 2012 and Cruise Terminal 1 in 2014, complete renovations of Cruise Terminal 5 and Cruise Terminal 10 were engaged and are currently underway. The three major improvements of this $90 million dollar plan are: state-of-the-art passenger boarding systems, renovation of the passenger areas and a new parking garage.

TECHNICAL FEATURES

Like in Terminal 5, this terminal will operate a pair of symmetrical Seaport Passenger Boarding Bridges that will include all the latest innovations and cutting-edge technology patented by ADELTE, ensuring optimum operating efficiency and total safety and comfort for passengers, including those with reduced mobility. These systems will also allow continuous truck, equipment and supplies traffic on the quayside while passengers can embark and disembark in total safety. Moreover, the HYDRAs will be equipped with an innovative new feature developed by ADELTE’s R&D engineering department. It consists of a cabin with a double telescopic ramp, which adapts perfectly to each access door position and configuration and allows a greater flow of passengers.
