Barcelona, 27th October – ADELTE is enforcing its presence in ASIA. After completing three successful projects in Singapore, Hong Kong and South Korea, ADELTE got awarded with two new contracts to supply Passenger Boarding Bridges (SPBBs) in Incheon and in Taiwan. It is the first project in Taiwan but already the second for South Korea, where ADELTE installed in 2014 four SPBBs KRONUS at Busan new ferry Terminal.
Incheon port is located on the route from China to Japan and has a very important position as a gateway to Seoul. Incheon Port Authority aims to reach three million passengers by 2020 and to become a cruise hub in Northeast Asia. The Incheon International Cruise Terminal, currently under construction, is designed to accommodate the largest cruise vessels and to provide them with superior passenger experience. The two symmetrical HYDRA Seaport Passenger Boarding Bridges that will be designed manufactured and installed by ADELTE will offer efficient, safe and comfortable access to the growing number of coastal and international guests.
Apart from Incheon, ADELTE will deliver two more state-of-the-art boarding bridges in Keelung and in Taipei ports. “The growth potential of the cruise tourism market in the region is strong and Taiwan´s cruise passenger arrival has more than doubled during the past five years. Therefore Taiwan International Port Corporation (TIPC) decided to contract ADELTE to modernize Keelung W2 and Taipei N1 cruise terminals equipment by providing two custom-made SEDNA Passenger Boarding Bridges. Both systems should allow TIPC to welcome in the best conditions Asia´s largest cruise vessels such as Quantum and Oasis of the Seas” says Miko Liaw, CEO, Switch Means Industrial Co.
