Ramboll to design facilities at Nizhny Novgorod International

The Danish design and engineering firm Ramboll has been awarded a contract to design new facilities at the Nizhny Novgorod International Airport.

Nizhny Novgorod International is currently Russia's fastest growing regional airport, and the new project will involve the construction of a new passenger terminal as well as a new access road and parking area. In winning the contract, Ramboll beat out the Dutch firm Tebodin and the German construction company Hochtief, according to TheConstructionIndex.co.uk.

"This high profile contract represents another positive step forward for our company in the fast-growing Russian aviation market," managing director of Ramboll in Russia Sergej Juzovitski said, according to TheConstructionIndex.co.uk
. "The customer acknowledged our successful local and international project experience and the diligent effort our team put into the bid preparation."

The new construction at the Novgorod airport is expected to be completed by 2014, and further expansion is expected as passenger traffic grows. Nizhny Novgorod is set to host the FIFA world championship games in 2018. Because of the upcoming high profile soccer tournament, regional authorities are investing heavily into the expansion of the city's transportation infrastructure.

The Nizhny Novgorod International Airport is part of a new airport consortium that was established in Russia by the Koltsovo Yekaterinburg Airport.
