Cruise Ship Terminal Concrete Pontoons

Juneau, Alaska

As part of the cruise ship terminal improvement project, BergerABAM engineers designed two concrete pontoons for the City of Juneau, Alaska. The pontoons serve as passenger loading/unloading platforms and were installed to facilitate simultaneous berthing of multiple cruise ships. The design enables operations during tidal variations up to 30 feet without the need for special equipment or measures. Each pontoon will be held in place by mooring dolphins and accessed from an approach dock by a 140-foot-long transfer bridge. BergerABAM’s extensive design experience on the construction of floating concrete structures resulted in a cost-effective and efficient design of the pontoons.
