Port of Amsterdam International and Passenger Terminal Amsterdam (PTA) were part of an international consortium that won the design tender in 2010 for the Kai Tak Cruise Terminal in Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. The consortium was headed by Dragages Hong Kong, a subsidiary of Bouygues, and included Foster+Partners.
The goal of the new cruise terminal was to stimulate large scale cruise tourism between mainland China and Hong Kong. The final routing and functionality of the winning design was based on the cruise terminal in Amsterdam, applied on a larger scale, with the capacity to accommodate large cruise vessels of up to 8,400 passengers. This fact underlines the practicality and scalability of the Passenger Terminal Amsterdam model and is a testament to the strength of this design.
Port of Amsterdam International and PTA assisted and advised the cruise terminal design team of Foster+Partners on all design and planning matters related to:
- Terminal layout and operation
- Equipment design integration and installation
- Quality services with respect to check-in, baggage handling, security screening, embarkation and disembarkation passenger flow
