Abu Dhabi set to release major airport tender
by CW Staff on Jan 18, 2010


Abu Dhabi International is being re-developed at a cost of US $6.8 billion.


Contractors have been invited to express their interest in the contract to build Abu Dhabi International Airport’s Midfield Terminal Building.

The Midfield Terminal Building is a cornerstone of the US $6.8 billion redevelopment of the airport. It will house the operations of Etihad, the UAE’s national airline, and will be built to handle 20 million passengers annually.

Pre-conditions for expressions of interest include annual turnover of US $5 billion and 'successful completion' of five similar projects in the last ten years, two of which must be worth more than US $1 billion.

Bidders must also be familiar with international green building codes and be able to comply with the forthcoming Estidama guidelines.

Further information on the project and how to express interest are online at: http://mtc.scadia.com/mtc/tender.html

I still don't think that 2 international carriers in a distance of 200 km's is a viable project in the long term. Heck, with DWC just an hour away from AD, is this even necessary?

Look, both Emirates and Etihad are devoted for a hub-and-spoke business modell. That means: they can operate more or less independetly from their homebases, they are pegged to the outer markets (Europe, Asia etc.)... Their main business comes from transfering passengers.

As long as these markets give them business, there's no problem with such a 2 big airports and/or airlines... By my opinion.

Maybe because Dubai's bail out / take over / whatever by Abu Dhabi had some preconditions and Dubai is a bit short of cash at the moment anyway?

That's because of the big brake what the World switched on during these months.

The slowing growth requires slowing development, of course. And yes, the apparent lack of money is an other very big reason.

But that doesn't touches the question of viability of such 2 airlines or their independent homebases... Just the scales and the sizes are under review.

Abu Dhabi Airports receives tender proposals from six pre-qualified contractors to build Midfield Terminal Building

United Arab Emirates: 2 hours, 26 minutes ago

Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC) announced that it has received six tenders for the construction of the new Midfield Terminal Building at Abu Dhabi International Airport. The Midfield Terminal Building, which is expected to go live in the first half of 2017, is the key component of the development program at the airport and it will contribute to the long-term success of the aviation sector in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.

Abu Dhabi International Airport is one of the fastest growing airports in the world, with growth rates of 19.7% over the last five years, spurred by the rapid growth of its hub airline, Etihad Airways, and the increasing attraction of Abu Dhabi as a destination for business and leisure. Growth over the next 20 years is forecasted to be robust, and additional facilities are required to accommodate the traffic demand.

The 700,000-square-meter terminal building is one of the most crucial projects to be undertaken in Abu Dhabi and the UAE and will initially handle 27-30 million passengers per year. The receipt of tenders represents a key milestone for the Emirate in its drive to develop a world-class air transportation hub.

Commenting on the tenders, Chairman of ADAC, H.E. Khalifa Al Mazrouei said, "ADAC's commitment continues as it strives to sustain growth in passenger numbers by constantly planning major developments and improvements across the airports' infrastructure, facilities and services."

Following commencement of extensive site preparation and foundation works in 2010, construction of the Midfield Terminal building is planned to commence during the 2nd quarter of 2012 to become the future home of Etihad Airways, the national airline of the UAE, and the primary gateway to the Emirate.

The six pre-qualified contractors through joint ventures are:

• Al Habtoor - Murray & Roberts - Hochtief JV
• Bechtel - ENKA - Al Jaber Group JV
• Hyundai Engineering & Construction Co. Ltd -Kumho Industrial Co.- China State - Al Shafar JV
• Larsen Toubro - NPC-Joannou & Paraskevaides (Overseas) Ltd JV
• Samsung- ACC - Six Construct JV
• TAV - CCC - ATC JV

Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC) is a public joint-stock company wholly owned by the Abu Dhabi Government. It was incorporated by Amiri Decree number 5, issued on 4 March 2006, to spearhead the development of the Emirate's aviation infrastructure. In September 2006, ADAC assumed responsibility for the operation and management of Abu Dhabi and Al Ain International Airports. In 2008, ADAC added Al Bateen Executive Airport (an exclusive private aviation airport), and Sir Bani Yas and Delma Island Airports to its portfolio. These airports are geared to serve the various segments of air travellers, the aviation marketplace, and will help contribute to Abu Dhabi's development as a destination for both business and leisure tourism.

Currently under way is the multi-billion dollar re-development and expansion of Abu Dhabi International Airport designed to increase the overall capacity of the airport to more than 20 million passengers per year. As part of this redevelopment, a second runway and a third terminal have been completed.

There is already a plan to extend the midfield terminal towards the back with a satellite concourse. Also, when the need arises, the airport can be extended past the second runway with another terminal and a third runway should the need arise. The land was allocated in the Strategic Plan 2030.

Of course, there is no need to even talk about extending a terminal if the original construction seems to be delayed every couple of months.
