The last year has been a very positive one for Adelte in terms of passenger boarding bridge (PBB) orders. In May 2018 Carnival Corp & plc and Meraas, the government-owned Dubai developer, signed a strategic partnership aimed at transforming the emirate into a major maritime tourism hub.

Dubai Harbour will become home to two cruise terminals, spanning a total of 30,000m2, joined by a single quay of about 1km, capable of accommodating up to three cruiseships concurrently, as well as up to 13,200 passengers at a time. In anticipation of an upsurge in cruises, Meraas has planned for the addition of two more terminal buildings that will increase capacity to six cruise ships at the same time.

As part of this project, Adelte has won a contract for four PBBs.

Elsewhere, six have been ordered, two each, for the North American ports of Boston, Port Canaveral and PortMiami. Two PBBs were contracted for Southampton, UK and two each for Brisbane and Sydney, Australia.

By the end of this year, Adelte will deliver two symmetrical PBBs to the new Cruise Terminal 3 in Port Canaveral. Design and manufacture will take place in Spain and the structural parts will be transported to the US for assembly. The terminal will be homeport to Carnival Cruise Line’s LNG-powered Mardi Gras.
