THE PROJECT

Cruise Gate Hamburg Terminaleigentumsgesellschaft (CGH), a subsidiary of Hamburg Port Authority (HPA), is currently building in cooperation with Hamburg Airport a new cruise terminal “Cruise Center Steinwerder” and has contracted ADELTE to design, manufacture and install two state-of-the-art HYDRA-model Seaport Passenger Boarding Bridges (SPBBs). The new Cruise Center, arising in the city district Steinwerder, right in the heart of the Port, will be able to accommodate new generation cruise vessels. Unlike the existing terminals in Altona and HafenCity, the new terminal will have one building for arriving and one building for departing passengers, both connected to ADELTE’s new SPBBs which will guaranty flexible and fast embarking and disembarking operations for 8.000 cruise guests in a day.

TECHNICAL FEATURES

The two custom-designed Seaport Passenger Boarding Bridges 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. The HYDRA Passenger Boarding Bridges will be equipped with an innovative feature for SPBBs patented by ADELTE: a docking ramp which will allow passenger embarkation and disembarkation to cruise ships doors below quay level. With this new project ADELTE, the leading provider of Seaport Passenger Boarding Bridges and Global Services to cruise and ferry terminals, significantly increases its install base in Germany with a total of 6 SPBBs operating in Kiel and Hamburg.
