THE PROJECT

The managing authority of the Port of Nador, the 'Office de Développement et d'Exploitation des Ports' (ODEP), faced with a tremendous increase in ferry passenger traffic since 1998, decided in 2001 to invest in a new terminal for this Mediterranean port in the North of Morocco. The objective was to create a safe and convenient facility that could easily deal with the boarding of passengers from two ferry vessels at the same time. ADELTE was asked to provide within 5 months two identical passenger boarding bridges to cover each side of the terminal. The bridges also had to be moveable in order to facilitate the diverse vessels of the Ferry operators with routes to Alicante and Almeria in Spain and Sète in France.

TECHNICAL FEATURES

Two movable passenger boarding bridges. The bridges have a dome shaped roof section covered with flexible transparent polycarbonate and are equipped with a telescopic element to provide the link with the docking door of the Ferry ships and a ramp to link with the hall of the terminal. The bridges use a hydraulic elevation system and their bogies slide along rails in the quay.
