Seven local and international firms are vying to win the contract for building works at Sohar’s new regional airport.

Package 3, which includes the construction of a passenger terminal building, cargo terminal and other buildings related to the airport was opened at the Tender Board recently.

Carillion Alawi, Larsen & Toubro (Oman), Strabag Oman, Al Turkey Enterprises, Galfar Engineering and Contracting Co, Oman Shapoorji Construction Co and Joannou and Paraskevaides Oman submitted the tenders. This package is the final tender for building works on the Sohar Airport project.

Package 1 for the project included civil works, road network, utilities and falaj protection works. Construction of the runway, taxiway, apron, and all other accessories were part of Package 2. Both packages were awarded to Strabag Oman.

Oman’s Ministry of Transport and Communication refloated the tender for Package 3 in September 2013, said a report by local media Muscat Daily. Reworking the technical and design features was expected to achieve cost reductions in the construction, maintenance and operation of the terminals, the Ministry had said at the time.

Additionally, the governing body had also stated the new design would allow horizontal expansions to smoothly take place in the future.
