Oman picks Hill for Muscat airport expansion
- Oman: Wednesday, January 02 - 2013 at 03:14
Oman's transport ministry has awarded Hill International a two-year contract worth OR41.8m ($108.5m) to supervise the expansion of Muscat's international airport, Reuters has reported. The US-based consultancy will replace Danish consulting group COWI after the ministry of transport opted not to renew a contract signed in 2008 to supervise the project. Initially, the sultanate planned to complete the expansion, worth $7bn, by the end of 2012, but has revised its completion date to late 2014. "COWI are blamed by the some officials for delaying the project by two years and that is the reason why they are being replaced," a transport ministry official, who did not want to be identified, told the news service.
