Egis has been awarded for “Design and Supervision Consultancy Services” for The New Cargo Area at Bahrain International Airport (BIA). The letter was signed by His Excellency Engineer Kamal bin Ahmed Mohamed, Minister of Transportation and Telecommunications and Mr. Mohamed Yousif AI-Binfalah, CEO of Bahrain Airport Company. It was received by Jacques Khoriaty, Middle East & South Asia Aviation Director at Egis.
The continuous fast development of Cargo at the airport as well as the strategy of the Kingdom of Bahrain to reinforce its position as a key cargo hub for the region led Bahrain Airport Company (BAC) to take the decision to develop two cargo-logistic areas at Bahrain International Airport (BIA):
1. New Cargo Area
2. Cargo Logistics Center located south of the runway
The New Cargo Area will contain four warehouses that will support the growing express carrier operations at BIA with the new, effective infrastructure: cargo apron, taxiways and airside service roads; warehousing space, tenant support facilities and offices; landside truck access and parking; landside staging area; airside staging area for GSE vehicles; container and ground service equipment and landside staff and customer parking.
Egis team of experts will provide the support during all phases of the project: from master plan validation to construction supervision passing by the design.
The works are expected to start in January 2019.
