Aerodrom Ljubljana calls tender for construction of T2 passenger terminal
Slovenia's Aerodrom Ljubljana, the operator of Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport, has made the first public call for tenders for the construction of the T2 passenger terminal, scheduled for completion by 15-Jan-2015, according to investslovenia.org. Under the international call for tenders, Aerodrom Ljubljana will select the most favourable tender for construction and finishing work, electrical and mechanical installations and the completion of the exterior of T2. The deadline for the submission of tenders is 60 days and the selection of the contractor will take place in three stages. After the contract signature, the selected contractor will have 20 months to carry out all the work to meet the 2015 construction deadline. The 31,200sqm terminal will have a capacity of 1,800 passengers per hour and will eliminate bottlenecks, ensure the requisite security and safety of air transport and also provide extra space for commercial activities. The project has been valued at EUR72 million although this may be revised once all public contracts have been awarded. The construction of T2 is part of Aerodrom Ljubljana’s EUR117 million central investment project up to 2017, which includes construction of a small logistics centre in 2013 and a cargo terminal in 2014 and 2015.
