Kuwait International Airport project draws lowest bidders

A group of Kuwaits Kharafi National and Turkeys Limak Holding have placed their lowest bid for KD1.386bn contract to build a new terminal at Kuwait International Airport, said the tender committee in a statement.

The bids have been referred to by the Ministry of Public Works to study and make a final recommendation, the statement said. The lowest bidder usually wins the contract, but, the statement has not specified if the contract has been awarded yet.

Other bidders for the contract were China State Construction Engineering Corporation and Dubai-based Arabtec.

The Gulf countries are using their oil wealth to expand infrastructure and housing facilities.

Qatar has unveiled its new international airport early this year at a cost of $17billion. Abu Dhabi is also building a new mid-field terminal airport.
