MOSCOW, January 19. /TASS/. Limak and Renaissans — the companies with Turkish owners — will compete for the construction of terminal B and the tunnel of the Sheremetyevo airport in Moscow, Mikhail Vasilenko, the airport’s general director told reporters.
The project is estimated at $630 mln, he said.
"We have prepared projects for a cargo complex, a terminal and a tunnel, they are already in Glavgosexpertiza [the Directorate-General for State Environmental Review — TASS], we expect to receive them in January. Now the competition for a general contractor is underway. They opened envelopes on Friday. Strabag withdrew. The two companies Limak and Renaissans remain. Renaissans is a Russian company, but with the Turkish owners. Either one general contractor will be chosen for two objects or one contractor for each object," he said.
The construction of the new terminal B for passengers of domestic flights in the northern part of the Sheremetyevo airport is estimated at $300 mln. The new terminal with the area of 100,000 square meters will make it possible to increase the airport capacity by 15 million passengers a year.
For connection of the new terminal with terminal C an underground tunnel will be built. It will also enable passengers to move from terminal D to terminal E.
In late November, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree "On measures to ensure Russia’s national security and protect nationals of the Russian Federation from criminal and other illegal actions and to use special economic measures against the Turkish Republic."
Under the decree, Russia bans or limits the imports of certain Turkish goods. The Russian president signed another decree on December 28 that says that Moscow’s ban covers not only Turkish companies themselves but also firms controlled by Turkish nationals.
