Galfar wins $105m Oman airport deal
Muscat, October 21, 2009
Galfar Engineering has won a 40.5 million rial ($105.2 million) tender for the Ras Al Hadd airport, its chief executive said on Wednesday.
"We won the Ras Al Hadd tender for 40.5 million rials," Hans Erlings told Reuters.
The Omani firm beat out bids from India's Larsen & Toubro, South Korea's Hanjin Heavy Industries, Austria-based Strabag and another Omani contractor, Desert Lines.
In August, Oman invited tenders for the construction of three airports at Sohar, Duqm and the extension of the Salalah airport. -Reuters
