Sacyr Engineering and Infrastructure, a subsidiary of Spanish construction company Sacyr, has won a €44m contract from Aena for a building joining terminals T1 and T2 of the Tenerife Sur Airport in Spain.
The project is intended to increase the space of the airport by 14,000m² and will include a complete transformation of the airport facility by integrating both buildings into a single terminal area.
In addition to the distribution of the outer urbanisation of the terminal area to adapt to the new configuration, Sacyr will also be responsible for the construction of a modern, centralised security control, which is based on a single level, with two large side billing areas in terminals T1 and T2.
As a result, the passenger flow at terminal T1 will be readjusted and the commercial area expanded.
The building will also feature two new entrance ramps to accommodate four new boarding gates.
The works, which will begin in April 2019, will be carried out over 23 months in phases so that the impact on the operation of the airport is minimal.
Sacyr has extensive experience in the implementation of airport projects in Spain, Portugal and Angola with works valued at more than €1,600m carried out, including the T4 at the Adolfo Suárez Madrid Barajas Airport, Murcia, Ciudad Real.
The company is currently carrying out the improvement works for the El Tepual (Puerto Montt, Chile) and Chiclayo (Peru) airports.
Earlier in March 2019, Sacyr Environment, another subsidiary of the Spanish construction company, has started providing urban cleaning and collection and transport of waste service from the Biscayan municipality of Barakaldo in Spain.
The four-year contract, worth more than €35m, has the option for renewal for another two years.
The new service includes several improvements, such as the reinforcement of the cleaning service in all neighbourhoods and the extension of the implementation of the ‘fifth container’ for the selective collection of organic waste.
The entire fleet of vehicles and machinery will be replaced with more eco-efficient ones, and will be powered by less-polluting compressed natural gas (CNG) or electricity.
