The Administracao dos Portos do Douro e Leixoes (APDL)  offers cruise passengers first-rate services with the new, ultra-modern cruise terminal building in the shape of a boat hull. For this new terminal ADELTE was contracted to design, manufacture and install an innovative, HYDRA-model boarding bridge (SPPB) which connects with an elevated walkway leading to the cruise terminal.

Consisting of two tunnels of each 26 meters and with a state-of-the-art docking cabin capable of serving mega cruise ships at dock level, the SPBB can service vessels up to 300m in length. As with every project undertaken by ADELTE, this new fully custom-designed SPBB include cutting-edge technology patented by ADELTE, ensuring optimum operating efficiency and total comfort and safety for passengers, including those with reduced mobility.
