On October 1st, work will start on the extension project “Expansion Non-Schengen East” (UNSØ) at Avinor Oslo Airport. An information meeting will be held for contractors, and a prior information notice for the tender competitions has been published.
The project “Expansion Non-Schengen East” (UNSØ), Oslo Airport Phase 2 comprises construction of a building of approximately 30,000 m2 linked to the East Pier and associated fixed points and aircraft parking positions.
Construction work will start on 1 October 2018 and is scheduled to be completed in the second quarter of 2022. The total budget for the extension is NOK 3.3 billion.
An information meeting for suppliers regarding Project UNSØ – Expansion Non-Schengen East, Oslo Airport, will be held on Wednesday 19 September at 12.00 noon at Park Inn, Gardermoen. Interested parties must register for the information meeting by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, stating the company’s name and the number of people who will be attending.
“Work on the expansion of the non-Schengen terminal area is starting in October. We are looking forward to getting started and the upcoming competitions to find the best contractors to build the new building," says Runar Botten, Avinor’s acting project director.
The information meeting will be useful for all suppliers that are interested in the project. The first contracts for the building will be announced in February 2019.
Important project for Norway
“The expansion of Oslo Airport is important to further develop Norway’s main airport as an international hub. It will provide increased capacity and improve conditions for our passengers and airlines, as well as improving the framework conditions for travel, tourism and business in Norway – which is an important part of Avinor’s social mission,” says Øyvind Hasaas. Managing Director of Avinor Oslo Airport.
The current capacity of the area for non-Schengen traffic is 5.5 million passengers per year. After the expansion, capacity will be approximately 8 million passengers per year.
“In recent years, there has been significantly greater growth in traffic to and from countries outside of the Schengen Area than in traffic within it. It is absolutely essential that we build good, adapted infrastructure to handle this traffic. This will increase Norway’s competitiveness and provide considerable economic benefits,” concludes Hasaas.
