ADP Ingénierie, a subsidiary of French engineering company Groupe Aeroports de Paris (ADP), has secured a €15m design and supervision contract for the expansion of the Sharjah International Airport in UAE.

The contract was awarded by the Sharjah Airport Authority following a competitive tender and is part of an overall $410m modernisation and expansion project for the Sharjah International Airport.

It will see the capacity of the existing terminal increased from 11 million passengers to 17.5 million per annum.

The project will also focus on improving the passenger experience, including flows segregation (departures/arrivals) and additional aircraft parking stands.

“One of the challenges will be to maintain the airport capacity and operations at all time during the execution of the construction package.”

ADP Ingénierie CEO Gratien Maire said: “This new contract rewards our know-how in airport design in a part of the world where we are very active. Our team of experts will be deployed in Sharjah.

“One of the challenges will be to maintain the airport capacity and operations at all time during the execution of the construction packages, which are expected to start on 2019.”
