Philippines receives bids for Clark Airport O&M contract

The Philippines Government has received bid documents from two consortiums for the operations and maintenance (O&M) of an existing passenger terminal and a new building at Clark Airport in the city of Mabalacat. 

The Philippines Government has received bid documents from two consortiums for the operations and maintenance (O&M) of an existing passenger terminal and a new building at Clark Airport in the city of Mabalacat. 

Documents were submitted to The Department of Transportation (DOTr) and the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) and will be evaluated by the Special Bids and Awards Committee (SBAC).

In May, the BCDA commenced the bidding process.

The new terminal building at Clark Airport is expected to become operational by 2020 and is being developed to decongest Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

One of the parties that submitted a bid was X-Droid Consortium. The group comprises Indonesian state-owned airport services company Angkasa Pura II, Globalport 900, Mazy Capital and Desco.

North Luzon Airport Consortium includes Filinvest Development, JG Summit, Philippine Airport Ground Support Solutions, and Changi Airport Philippines.

“Until now we are getting bidders’ request to extend the time, but we cannot already because we’re four months behind.”

The Philippines expects to award O&M contracts next month.

The World Bank’s private lending division International Finance (IFC) is serving as lead transaction adviser to BCDA for the bidding process for the Clark International Airport project.

BCDA business development and operations senior vice-president Joshua Bingcan was quoted by manilatimes.net as saying: “Until now we are getting bidders’ request to extend the time, but we cannot already because we’re four months behind. The original date of submission is July and now it’s already November.”

Once the contract is awarded, the O&M Concessionaire will be required to finance, design and complete all fitouts for existing and new passenger terminals.

The online publication reported that the contract will last for a term of 25 years.

BCDA expects to open the airport in the first half of 2020.
