Oman receives three bids for Duqm airport

12 June 2011

Package three covers construction of terminal buildings

Oman’s Transport & Communications Ministry has received three bids for package three of Duqm International airport in Oman.

The ministry had invited companies to submit their bids by 6 June. Package three covers construction works for the airport, including construction of the terminal buildings and the air traffic management system.

The companies that submit bids include:

  • Larsen & Toubro (India)
  • Galfar Engineering & Contracting (local)/Daewoo Engineering & Construction (South Korea)
  • Consolidated Contractors Company (CCC) (Athens-based)

Turkey’s Makyol and South Korea’s Hanjin Heavy Industries & Construction Company did not submit bids, although both companies picked up tender documents.

In December 2010, Hanjin Heavy Industries & Construction Company won the $115m second infrastructure package at Duqm International airport. Package two covers the airfield infrastructure, which includes building a 4-kilometre-long runway.

Local Desert Line Projects won the contract for package one in 2008. Package one covers access roads, utilities and car parking facilities.

Duqm airport is one of a number of airport projects that Oman is developing, the two main ones being Muscat and Salalah International airports.
