St. Kitts Cruise Pier Opens
JMT is excited to announce that construction of the new St. Kitts cruise pier is complete and open as of Dec. 16, 2019, when the pier welcomed two ships. The project is in St. Kitts, West Indies, a small island in the Caribbean. JMT provided preliminary design, final design, and construction inspection for the new deep-water cruise ship pier as part of a design-build contract with JV Driver, out of Canada.
The pier is adjacent to the existing pier at Port Zante and can accommodate two Oasis Class cruise ships up to 1,200 feet long and draft of 31 feet simultaneously. The pier includes mooring and breasting dolphins, catwalks, 150- and 200-ton capacity mooring bollards, high energy-absorbing berthing fenders, and pier lighting. The design included two 200-ton mooring dolphins with steel connector catwalks and a renovated jetty and access trestle structure to connect to the shore.Back to All News
