ADPI (Aéroports de Paris Ingénierie), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Aéroports de Paris (Paris:ADP) (Pink Sheets:AEOPF), has been chosen to take part in the resumption of the upgrade of Zanzibar international airport, also called Abeid Amani Karume International Airport, which involves, in particular, the construction of a second terminal.
According to Guillaume Sauvé, CEO of ADPI.
"Having been selected by the Tanzanian local authorities, ADPI has every intention of fulfilling its mission of creating value for its clients by drawing on its expertise in airport processes and its experience in airport terminal design and renovation.
After designing new terminals for Mayotte and Mauritius international airports, this contract marks a new phase in our development in the Indian Ocean region."
Works to be resumed
work on the new terminal, which began in February 2011, had to be halted in 2012 as some aspects of the project did not comply with ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) standards.
The Zanzibar authorities were, therefore, keen to revive the project due to its strategic importance in the development of tourism on the island.
ADPI was chosen by the MoIC (Ministry of Infrastructure and Communication) and ZAA (Zanzibar Airport Authority) to provide concrete solutions so that works could recommence. ADPI's teams have, therefore, adapted the architectural design of the terminal, drawn up layout plans and carried out various engineering studies. Following negotiations with the Chinese building company BCEG and MoIC, these studies mean that it will be possible to resume works.
At present, ADPI is continuing in the role of Project Manager for the duration of the works up until the successful completion of the project.
According to Frédéric Thenevin, ADPI's regional development manager for Africa : "A growing awareness of the need to supervise construction projects opens up an engineering and consultancy market with high-growth potential. ADPI can, thus, provide guarantees for quality, safety and aviation security."
Features of the new terminal:
- Surface area: 25,000 sqm
- Capacity: 3 million passengers per year
- Construction company: BCEG (Beijing Construction Engineering Group Ltd.)
