Cruise liner terminal, Warnemünde
Multifunctional berth

The cruise ship terminal in the German port city of Warnemünde needed to be extended and developed in order to be able to accommodate ships of greater draught. During the cruise liner industry’s off-season, the quay edge was reconstructed and made uniform, in part by the installation of back-anchored sheet piling. The multifunctional berth (length: 465m) connects directly to the existing renovated passenger quay. The terminal area is equipped with supply and disposal pipe networks, and the open areas were developed appropriately.

The construction work included:

  • Complete rehabilitation of Berth 8
  • Quay equipment
  • Adjustments to the area between the new quay edge and the existing areas
  • Connection of existing stormwater culvert / new sheet piling
  • Dredging, establishment of a depth of 9.95m (below sea level), initially over a length of 320 m, with soil shifting according to chemical analysis and declaration
