Central air-con and commercial refrigeration company Blue Star Limited has won orders worth Rs130 crore for air-con and plumbing at the new integrated terminal building (Terminal 2) of the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA), Mumbai.

The scope of work at Terminal 2 is being split into two phases. While Blue Star was awarded the contract to air-condition the South West Pier, valued at Rs15 crores, a few months ago, it has now won the contract to air-condition the T2 Processor, valued at Rs93 crores.

In addition, DS Gupta Construction, a company that Blue Star acquired recently, has also been awarded the plumbing and firefighting contracting works for Terminal 2, valued at Rs22 crores.

Blue Star’s scope of work involves supply, installation, testing, commissioning, handover, training, maintenance and warranty of all air-con and ventilation services. The equipment being supplied includes air-handling units, cooling towers, pumps, ventilation fans, panels, BMS, insulation and electrical components. Blue Star will also be handling the project execution of the plumbing works.

Blue Star’s superior project management skills and impressive track-record of on-time completion helped it win this prestigious order. The other airport projects that Blue Star has executed include Aurangabad, Ahmedabad, Trivandrum, Mangalore, Nagpur, Jaipur, Amritsar, Madurai, Dehradun, Raipur and Pune.

CSIA is one of India’s busiest airports, having recorded 25.6 million passengers in 2009-10. Currently CSIA has three domestic terminals at Santa Cruz and two international terminals at Sahar in operation.

Mumbai International Airport Pvt. Ltd. (MIAL), a JV between the GVK led consortium (74%) and Airports Authority of India (26%), was awarded the mandate of modernising and upgrading Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA) in February 2006.

MIAL is currently implementing a masterplan to build an integrated terminal, with a vision and framework to modernise this airport as one of the best airports in the world. After modernisation, the new integrated Terminal 2 will be able to accommodate 40 million passengers a year.
