Denmark grants loan to refurbish Mozambique’s airports

2 February 2007

Maputo, Mozambique, 2 Feb – The Mozambican government plans to use loans granted by Denmark to refurbish and improve the airports of Beira, Quelimane and Tete, under the terms of a tender launched by supply electricity to all the districts of Tete province by 2009 from the power produced by Aeroportos de Moçambique (ADM).

The tender, which is aimed at supplying and installing equipment for designing and building work at the three airports, is open until March 26 and only companies or consortia led by Danish companies are eligible to apply.

At the end of January, the ADM authorities allowed interested parties to visit the airports of Beira, Tete and Quelimane in order to see the work that was required.

The government did not reveal a financial basis for the proposals.

The funding is part of a loan supplied by the Danish International Development Agency (Danida) which has worked on social, training, infrastructure and technical assistance projects in Mozambique for several decades. (macauhub)
