Dutch firm wins $34m contract for Kuwait Int'l Airport
Dutch Deerns will supervise and manage the installation of navigation and meteorology systems at the airport
A contract has been awarded to implement navigation and meteorology systems at Kuwait International Airport (KWI).
Kuwait's Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has awarded the $33.4m (KWD10.2m) contract to Dutch Deerns.
Under the five-year contract, Dutch Deerns will provide supervision and management services for the systems' installation, and update KWI's technical guidelines as well.
The company's contribution to developing the airport's navigation capabilities is significant given the new runways and control tower that have been developed for KWI, KUNA reported.
In May, it was announced that heavy lifting work had begun for the Kuwait airport's new terminal building (T2).
Mammoet has been awarded a contract to work on Kuwait International Airport's new terminal building.
Turkish contractor Limak Insaat, which is building the project, has picked Mammoet for the $4.3bn (KWD1.3bn) development.
As part of its contract, Mammoet will install all precast sections of the terminal’s main structure, which comprises 804 concrete elements, each of which weighs between 200t and 360t.
