About the project
The Port of Miami (POM) upgraded in 2009/2010 Cruise Terminals B and C for Norwegian Cruise Lines. POM awarded ADELTE in February 2009 a contract to deliver two completely mobile HYDRA PBBs and an additional mobile elevated walkway for these terminals. The PBBs are especially designed to service the new generation cruise vessels with overhanging lifeboats like the Norwegian Epic. The PBBs were inaugurated in July 2010.
The HYDRA Passenger Boarding Bridges are equipped with motor driven solid tyres to move along the whole dock. Electro-mechanically powered elevation systems allow the PBB to connect with cruise ship entry doors at various levels. The boarding bridge is built completely according to Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) guidelines and its glass mounted tunnel sections and air-conditioning significantly enhances comfort for the boarding and disembarking of cruise guests, of all ages.
