Mega Cruise Pier II - Curaçao
Design and construct project which was part of the total development that Curaçao Ports Authority N.V. realised with ‘Rif Seaport Curaçao’- Masterplan 2014-2016. The plan was of importance for the further growth of cruise tourism to Curaçao.
BAM’s scope of work for the Mega Cruise Pier II at Otrabanda, Willemstad, comprised the marine facilities, consisting of the almost 200-metre-long jetty, a 75-metre-long approach trestle, four mooring dolphins and the land reclamation protected by shore revetment as well as improvements to the existing Mega Cruise Pier I. Sister company BAM Infraconsult was involved in the design of the new pier.
The new pier is situated west of the entrance to St. Anna Bay and adjacent to Mega Cruise Pier I.
Pier II is suitable for Oasis-class cruise vessels, currently the largest type of passenger ships. In addition, the jetty is used for berthing general cargo vessels, tankers and offshore service vessels.
The project was completed in October 2017.
