Nuttall/Interbeton High-flying jv wins airport prize

A JOINT venture between Nuttall and Dutch firm Interbeton, both part of the Hollandsche Beton Groep, has taken a £33 million airport contract in Zimbabwe.

The deal includes civil engineering and building work associated with a £55 million project to extend Harare International Airport.

The scheme includes the design and construction of a new terminal building, traffic control tower and apron to cope with a projected increase in passenger numbers. About 1.7 million passengers a year are expected to use the airport by 2010.

Mechanical and electrical work will be carried out by ABB Calor Emag Schaltanlagen, with Air Harbour Technologies responsible for the design work.

The project, for the Ministry of Transport and Energy is expected to take 27 months to compete.
