NEWS, Projects, Abu dhabi, Midfield Terminal Complex

News agency Reuters said that Abu Dhabi Airports Company's deputy development officer, Daniel Molloy, told a conference that construction work on the 700,000 ft2 terminal would complete by the end of 2016.

Work by a trio of contractors including Arabtec Construction, Consolidated Contractors Co and TAV began on the site last month.

"By the end of the second quarter of 2017, we will be operational," said Molloy.

He added that passenger numbers at Abu Dhabi had increased by 20% on last year. Its three existing terminals have capacity to carry 12.5m passengers a year, but the new terminal will increase this by 30m.

In a recent interview with CW, the regional director of Aecom, Riad Nashif, said that 18 new tenders for products and services such as the IT infrastructure and the baggage reclaim system are set to be issued within the next few months.

Aecom is responsible for construction management and commercial management of the project.
