L and T firm bags Abu Dhabi airport order

Bangalore, April 3 : Larsen and Toubro (L and T) construction firm has won an order valued at USD 257 million (Rs.1,398 crore) from Abu Dhabi Airports Company to build a midfield terminal complex in the UAE, the company said here Wednesday.

"Work on the midfield terminal complex is part of the major expansion programme of Abu Dhabi International Airport to serve as the new gateway to the city," the company said in a statement.

The order envisages building concrete hardstands for aircraft parking around the new terminal, including contact and remote stands. The airside works include taxi lanes along the apron parking stands and link taxiway connections to the existing infrastructure with a tunnel on the airside.

"The project has also an aircraft fuel hydrant system, storm and portable water distribution line, chilled water distribution system, medium voltage distribution sub-stations, communication network and fire main distribution system on the major utility segments," the statement said.

The project will commence this month with a construction timeline of 28 months. The new airport terminal complex is expected to be commissioned by 2017.

The USD 13.5-billion L and T is a technology, engineering, construction, manufacturing and financial services conglomerate, with global operations.
