On 29 May 2013, the consortium comprising Yongnam Holdings Limited, Changi Airport Planners and Engineers and JGC Corporation has submitted a proposal to the Myanmar Department of Civil Aviation on the Request for Proposal dated 8 February 2013, for the right to design, construct, operate and maintain Hanthawaddy International Airport and its facilities on the basis of a public-private partnership agreement for a 30-year concession period, having achieved pre-qualification prior in February 2013.
This is the consortium’s second proposal following an earlier submission in April 2013 for the right to design, build, operate and transfer Yangon International Airport and its facilities, also for a 30-year concession period. InfraPPP does not have news regarding the other competitors in the tender process.
The project requires the construction of an international passenger terminal building with an annual capacity for 12 million passengers, airfield facilities construction works on the runway, apron and taxiways.
These include a runway of 3,600m capable of accommodating aircraft like the B747 and A340, a full parallel support taxiway, 25 contact aircraft stands and 17 remote aircraft stands. Also included in the RFP is the installation of an advance baggage handling system, and the provision of other ancillary airport support systems such as underground fuel hydrant installation, sewage treatment plant, car parking facilities, utility tunnel and emergency power station. Hanthawaddy International Airport will be the fourth international airport in Myanmar, after that of Yangon, Mandalay and Nay Pyi Taw, and is located approximately 10 km west of the Bagotownship and 80 km from Yangon.
