Portugal’s Somague hired to carry out building work at Catumbela airport, Angola

28 June 2012

Portuguese construction company Somague has been hired by Brazilian construction company Odebrecht to carry out finishing work at the international terminal and control tower of Catumbela airport, to the value of US$68 million, Somague said in a statement.

Another contract was previously signed with Angolan state airport manager, Enana, to install equipment, furniture and the air navigation and project management system, worth US$54 million.

As well as Catumbela airport, Somague has also worked on refurbishment and expansion of Luanda Airport (4 de Fevereiro Airport) and has now been awarded the project to build the domestic terminal, which involves setting up a provisional terminal, knocking down the existing terminal and building a new one covering an area of 8,200 square metres over two floors and a mezzanine, costing UAS$32 million.

The two projects boost Somague’s portfolio in Angola, which now stands at a total of around US$400 million. (macauhub)
