THE PROJECT

Caledonian MacBrayne will place a new ferry, the Loch Seaforth, into operation for the crossing between Ullapool on the mainland and Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis. To facilitate smooth, safe and secure operations, the terminal installations at both harbours are being upgraded. ADELTE received a contract from BAM Nuttall to deliver a THALASSA Seaport Passenger Boarding Bridges at the ferry terminal in Stornoway.

TECHNICAL FEATURES

The THALASSA boarding bridge will have the ability to serve at dock level, absorb big tidal variations and operate with very strong service winds. ADELTE has currently a total of eight boarding bridge installations in the United Kingdom, in operation at the cruise and ferry passenger terminals of Harwich, Portsmouth, Ullapool and Southampton.
