Project Overview

Norwegian Cruise Lines (NCL) has been operating a cruise ship destination at Great Stirrup Cay in the Berry Islands of The Bahamas for several years and currently uses a tendering operation to carry passengers to the island. Due to weather constraints and safety issues, NCL misses a high percentage of port calls at Great Stirrup and determined that a fixed pier would help reduce missed calls and lost revenue. ATM is currently working with NCL and City Services, a local Bahamian Marine Contractor to design the new pier for NCL. Ongoing work includes environmental impact analysis, METOCEAN data collection using historic and site-specific instrument data collection, bathymetric surveying, and load analysis for the pier design. Secondary work includes coastal impact analysis from the new pier footprint and project management for all facets of the design and construction of the new pier.
