Aruba Airport’s Gateway 2030 project stepping into the next phase:

Five international construction companies to bid for the Gateway 2030 expansion project of the Main Building Contract

ORANJESTAD – Aruba Airport Authority N.V. (AAA) together with its project partners have finalized the design and tender documents for the main terminal construction, and completed the prequalification for the contract bids for the main terminal construction. The preparation works and relocation and upgrading of the airport’s main utilities are well underway, and the next phase will complete the remaining planning process and move the project into a full-construction stage.

The results of the prequalification process for the Main Building construction contract has been completed and the following five companies will be participating in the tendering process; Aecon Group Inc., Ballast Nedam International Projects B.V., Bam International B.V., Bouygues Batiment International, and Tav Tepe Akfe Construction & Operation Co. The selected contractor will be responsible for the construction of the terminal expansion, as well as the roadway and parking lot changes and upgrades. The Tender Documents and all technical drawings have been delivered on May 31st, site visits are planned for mid to late June, and final submittals are expected to be received in mid-September.

“We are excited about this next step in the Gateway 2030 project. The participation of these experienced international construction companies will provide the know-how and expertise needed to effectively execute our construction program, and also provide opportunities and partnerships with local subcontractors to work alongside these companies and allow for much needed local employment opportunities. The 34.000 m2 terminal expansion, with an estimated 4-year construction time, will ultimately provide the capacity and service upgrades necessary for the growing volume of passengers that travel through our airport every day. We are very pleased with the experience and expertise of the prequalified construction companies participating in the tender, and we’re confident the process will conclude with a good result, and we look forward to the next step in building our highly anticipated infrastructure project at Aruba Airport,” said AAA CEO Mr. James Fazio.
