Go-ahead for three new boarding bridges

BREMERHAVEN. Construction of the first of the new passenger bridges for the cruise terminal began at the Columbus Quay in January. Adelte, the Spanish engineering group, built three new passenger bridges for the bremenports port management company. Their installation is part of the new construction of the Columbus Quay, which started in November 2021. The quay, which handles passenger shipping in Bremerhaven, will be rebuilt over a length of 620 metres and widened 20 metres into the Weser by autumn 2023. The three new “Pegasus” bridges will be considerably longer than their predecessors, which were built almost twenty years ago. The new bridges will enable the cruise terminal to handle any large cruise ship, even ones with overhanging lifeboats. Adelte intends to install the first bridge by April 2023. Two further bridges are due to follow by autumn 2023.
