TAV Group to bid on African airport tenders
TAV Group looks to US, Brazil partnerships to extend global reach
The TAV Group is in talks to bid on African airport tenders. The Turkish construction conglomerate is also considering entering into partnerships in the US and Brazil in order to expand from its MENA base, according to CEO and president Sani Sener.
“Our main objective is to invest in an airport in Africa and run it,” Sener said in an interview with Reuters Africa. He said the group was in talks about bidding in tenders in Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania and South Africa.
“We were defining our region as MENA, the Balkans and Caucasian countries. Now, with the increasing speed of globalisation, we are also expanding our regional borders,”
The group is involved with major airport projects in the MENA region, including the Midfield Terminal Building at the Abu Dhabi International Airport (total value $6.78bn), the New Doha International Airport (total value $11bn), the Prince Mohammad Bin AbdulAziz International Airport in Madinah (first phase valued at $1.5bn) and the Muscat International Airport Expansion ($1.2bn).
