Moravian construction company PSJ has been awarded a 2.9 billion roubles (US$85.7m) contract to build a new passenger terminal at Nizhny Novgorod International Airport in Russia.

The development and reconstruction of the air transport hub will take place in stages and will be fully completed in 2021. The 290,000ft² terminal will be completed by the end of 2015 and will have a capacity of 1.5 million passengers annually. It will be equipped with four telescoping jetways and other modern technology.

“We are delighted to have won this demanding tender of several rounds, and thus have an opportunity to carry out one of the most prestigious projects in the Russian Federation. We see it as highly important for the region, and so we feel a particular responsibility. We are prepared to carry out the project while meeting the highest standards,” commented Milan Věžník, Ing., director of the PSJ branch in the Russian Federation.

“The ever-growing number of passengers makes proper clearance highly complicated in conditions limited by the existing Soviet-era infrastructure. Thanks to the use of the most modern technology, the new terminal will provide services to passengers and airlines on a qualitatively higher level. At the same time, it will provide a strong impetus to the economic development of the region,” said Aleksandr Sinelnikov, CEO of Nizhny Novgorod International Airport.

The project investor is ZAO UK Regional Airports, which is managing and modernizing airports in Yekaterinburg, Samara,and Nizhny Novgorod.
