Meinhardt Philippines Incorporated (MPI) has revealed that it is providing the MEP (mechanical, electrical and plumbing) design for the new $1.8bn (OMR 693.1m) Muscat airport project in Oman.

Bechtel, Enka, and Bahwan Engineering Group, the joint venture main contracting team, awarded the contract for detailed mechanical, electrical, plumbing, sanitary and fire protection engineering design services in both two and three dimensional formats to MPI through Meinhardt’s Singaporean parent branch.

According to Ferdinand V. Naniong, MPI’s managing director, the majority of the design works were done in Manila by Filipino engineers, specifically for the passenger terminal building and piers with a total approximate floor area of 332,00m³.

The Muscat International Airport will have 28 gates, a yearly capacity of 12 million passengers and will be able to accommodate the Airbus A380 – the largest passenger plane currently in operation.
