Oman tenders for Salalah airport radar system

10 October 2013

Deadline set for 9 December

The Oman Transport and Communication Ministry has tendered a contract for the design, supply, installation and commissioning of a primary and secondary radar system for Salalah airport.

The deadline for bids is 9 December.

Salalah airport is currently being expanded to increase capacity to 1 million passengers a year by 2014.  It can then be subsequently expanded to allow capacity to increase to 2 million and eventually 6 million passengers a year.

The main construction contract to build the passenger terminal was awarded in November 2010 to a joint venture between the local Galfar Engineering & Contracting and India’s Larsen & Toubro. Outstanding contracts include the detailed design and construction of cargo and maintenance repair and overhaul facilities.

Oman is also reviving its plans to expand its regional airports. In early September it tendered the construction packages for passenger terminals at Sohar and Ras Al-Hadd airports.
