Samsung C&T announced that it has won a 1.2 trillion order to build Terminal 3 of Taiwan’s Taoyuan International Airport. The project, ordered by Taiwan’s Taoyuan International Airport Corp., aims to expand the airport.
Taoyuan International Airport, which opened in 1979, is Taiwan’s No. 1 airport about 50 km northwest of Taipei. Since the opening of Terminal 2, the airport has been pushing for the construction of Terminal 3 to solve a congestion problem caused by an increase in the number of passengers.
Previously Samsung C&T successfully built Incheon International Airport’s first passenger terminal, the expansion of the airport’s boarding building and Mongolia’s Ulaanbaatar New International Airport. Samsung C&T is currently working on a ground improvement project for Hong Kong’s Chek Lap Kok International Airport, the expansion of a runway in Singapore’s Changi International Airport and the expansion of Bangladesh’s Dhaka International Airport.
Apart from the Taiwan airport project, Samsung C&T won a 1.8-trillion-won order to build an LNG export base in Qatar and a 500-billion-won order to build a subway in Singapore in March alone. As a result, the Korean builder booked orders worth more than 6 trillion won in the first quarter of 2021 alone.
