Following recent big airport wins in the Gulf region, Turkey’s TAV Construction will bid for new airport projects in Kuwait and Bahrain, said the company’s Middle East director.
Last year TAV Construction added Abu Dhabi airport’s Midfield Terminal Complex (MTC) to its project portfolio.
And on 14 May this year it won the design and construction tender for Saudi Arabia’s $400-million King Khaled Airport Terminal 5 in Riyadh.
Yusuf Akcayoglu told Construction Week that TAV is waiting for the release of tender documents for the new passenger terminal building project at Kuwait International Airport and for the Bahrain Airport expansion scheme.
Just the beginning: Last year TAV Construction won Abu Dhabi airport’s Midfield Terminal Complex (MTC).
He added that as an "airport specialist", TAV is currently tendering for regional airports in Saudi Arabia and that work on Doha’s Hamad International Airport had only "some final touches remaining".
He said TAV’s work on an infrastructure package at Muscat International Airport and the Marina 101 residential tower in Dubai will finish next year, while the expansion of Medina Prince Mohammad Bin Abdulaziz International Airport in Saudi Arabia is expected to finish in early 2015.
"Airports and airport-related projects such as air traffic control towers, airfield infrastructure runway-apron-taxiway systems and aircraft maintenance hangers are what we specialize in," said Akcayoglu.
