Global environmental consultancy Ramboll Environ has carried out an environmental and social impact assessment (ESIA) on the new Bugesera International Airport in Rwanda, East Africa.

The consultancy will prepare a resettlement action plan on behalf of the Bugesera Airport Company (BAC) for the new airport to serve the region.

BAC is a joint venture (JV) firm established by the Rwandan Government and engineering and construction services provider Mota-Engil Engenharia e Construção, a subsidiary of the Portuguese construction company Mota-Engil Group.

Ramboll Environ London office principal and project director Denise Wright said: “The new airport will be a huge boost for Rwanda, enhancing its economic growth and helping to make the country a hub for international tourism and trade.”

The first phase of the development project will see the construction of the new Rwandan international airport in Bugesera district to the south of the capital of Kigali.

To be built on an area of 2,500ha, the Bugesera International Airport will initially have the capacity to manage 1.8 million passengers every year, with the capability to expand to 2.5 million by 2030.

“The Bugesera International Airport will initially have the capacity to manage 1.8 million passengers every year.”

As part of the ESIA, a team of Ramboll Environ experts from the UK, South Africa, France, and Denmark, conducted environmental and social baseline surveys and assessments to prepare the report.

In addition, the consultancy will prepare a stakeholder engagement plan, environmental and social management plans, and a resettlement action plan.

Ramboll Environ recently completed ESIA of the six-runway Istanbul New Airport, phase one of which is expected to be completed by the end of next year.

The airport will be fully operational by 2028.
