Spanish engineering company ADELTE is to deliver a total of six Seaport Passenger Boarding Bridges (SPBBs) to three cruise ports in the US.

The Massachusetts Port Authority in Boston has ordered a HYDRA-type SPBB for its Raymond L. Flynn Black Falcon Cruise Terminal. Due for delivery in 2020, the SPBB will be designed for use with current and future next-generation cruise vessels, including those with overhanging lifeboats.

Meanwhile in Florida, PortMiami has ordered two symmetrical SEDNA-type SPBBs for Norwegian Cruise Line’s new Cruise Terminal B, which will be opened this November. ADELTE will also provide one SEDNA-type SPBB for Cruise Terminal C in 2020. All three SPBBs will be able to be used for both current and future next-generation cruise vessels, including those with overhanging lifeboats. Port Miami will have a total of eight ADELTE SPBBs in operation across four terminals.

ADELTE will supply two symmetrical SPBBs for Port Canaveral’s new Cruise Terminal 3, which is currently under construction and will serve as a homeport for Carnival Cruise Line’s first LNG-powered ship, Mardi Gras. Once installed, the port will have a total of eight ADELTE SPBBs across four cruise terminals.

All six SPBBs will be manufactured in Barcelona, Spain and will then be transported to the respective ports for final assembly.
