Unique cruise pier installed at Stockholm port

Extendible and retractable pier improves cruise capacity
Stockholm’s port of Nynäshamn is now equipped with a unique extendible and retractable pier that improves cruise capacity. It can disembark 3,000 cruise passengers in less than thirty minutes.
Just as the cruise season is getting underway, the 260 metre Seawalk works in a similar way to an extendible measuring ruler and can be extended out to the vessel.
Passengers and luggage can be embarked and disembarked without having to use tender-boats. When there is no cruise ship in port the pier is retracted.
“Currently there are only three similar constructions in the entire world and we have improved services and flexibility for the cruise ships significantly by investing in the Seawalk,” says Henrik Ahlqvist, head of cruise marketing at Ports of Stockholm.
The pier is between four and nine metres wide and smaller vehicles can drive along it to transport luggage and other supplies needed by the vessels. The mooring equipment can be used in wind speeds of up to 14 m/s.
Over the course of 2016’s six-month summer season, it is anticipated that 240 cruise ships carrying half a million passengers will arrive in Stockholm.
