General Director of Airports Regions Management Company Yevgeny Chudnovsky and Managing Partner of Limak Marash LLC Selchuk Karadzha have signed a general contraction agreement for the construction of a passenger terminal at Novy Urengoy airport (managed by Airports of Regions Management Company) with related infrastructure and utilities. Turkish consortium Limak Marash was declared the winner of the tender announced by the Airports of Regions Management Company.
The project of large-scale reconstruction of Novy Urengoy airport is carried out by Airports of Regions Management Company within the concession agreement concluded with the the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District Government. The new passenger terminal of the largest air hub in Yamal with an area of 18 thousand sq. m will be equipped with three telescopic ladders and 12 check-in counters. Its capacity will be 840 passengers per hour and 1.45 million passengers per year. The airport development master plan envisages the possibility of increasing the terminal area in the future and creating a sector for servicing international flights.
The general contractor has to implement the project of building a new passenger terminal, based on the architectural concept of the chum - the traditional home of the peoples of the North - designed to create a cozy atmosphere and to keep warmth inside. During the construction of the terminal building, modern construction materials will be used, providing both aesthetic and practical properties, such as energy efficiency and noise protection.
A distinctive feature of the airport complex will be a warm bus gate (a tunnel for buses) located in the terminal itself and intended for boarding and unloading passengers onto apron buses indoors, which is especially important for the harsh weather conditions of the Far North. It is planned to arrange short-term and long-term parking lots with a total capacity of 300 parking lots at the landside area in front of the new terminal.
In addition to the passenger terminal, the general contraction agreement includes the construction of a 14 MW boiler house, which will supply power to the terminal.
According to the general contraction agreement, the completion date of the objects is the 4th quarter of 2022. At the moment, the general contractor is carrying out preparatory works, mobilizing personnel and equipment to the construction site. The project will involve an average of 250-300 builders and more than 25 units of large construction equipment. Driving of the first piles for arranging the foundation of the new terminal is planned this year in December; within design basis there are about 1000 piles. The land plot of the construction site is located on the eastern side of the existing air terminal building.
