28 February 2010

Deal covers all of the sultanate’s airports

Spanish defence systems company Indra Sistemas has won a OR45m ($117m) contract to supply and install air traffic control management systems for all of Oman’s airports.

The contract will involve the supply and installation of voice communication equipment, software, and data management systems.

Indra saw off competition from US-based Raytheon, Italy’s Selex Sistemi Integrati, and Thales Air Systems of France to win the contract.

The deal is part of an ongoing expansion of the sultanate’s airports. The largest project is a multi-billion dollar expansion to Muscat International Airport. Other airport projects are being developed at Duqm, Sohar, Adam, Haima, and Shaleem (MEED 25:2:10).
