About the project

The Half Moone Cruise & Celebration Center was inaugurated on the 27th of April 2007. The facility is a design of Norfolk-based architectural and engineering company Clark Nexsen in cooperation with Miami-based BEA International Inc. ADELTE delivered the HYDRA boarding bridge a few weeks prior to the inauguration.
A mobile passenger boarding bridge.The bridge construction has a fixed entrance tunnel from the terminal to the rear gantry and two longitudinal tunnels along the riverside. The tunnels have ‘climalit’ glass. The gantry is designed to be electromechanically adjustable. A telescopic boarding pod covered platform stretches from the front movable cabin to provide direct access to the cruise vessel entrance. The bridge has two independent structures to support the tunnels and are equipped with an electromechanical drive system in order to move the construction along the wharf. This system consists of 8 groups of solid rubber wheels and a motor with a safety brake and the bridge is equipped with PLC. Its height of approximately 4.6 metres comply with ADA and NFPA regulations.
