L&T awarded $93m contract to build Oman airport
The subsidiary of India's L&T said the project is scheduled for completion within 24 months
Larsen & Toubro (Oman) has been awarded a $93.1m deal to construct a regional airport in the country, according to Arabian Business.
The scope of works includes the onstruction of a passenger terminal building, ATC complex, cargo and other service buildings including mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) works, special systems and external works, the company revealed in a statement.
The subsidiary of India's L&T added that the project is scheduled for completion within 24 months.
This will be the third project in Oman to be executed by L&T.
In October last year, it was reported that a new passenger terminal with annual capacity of 12 million travellers at the Muscat International Airport is now due to open by the end of 2016 - around one year later than the previous estimate.
Issues such as technical difficulties and the arrest of illegal workers delayed the original completion date which was scheduled for early 2014.
