As preparation for infrastructure rebuild & upgrades begin in Ukraine, deals have been signed regarding the rebuild of Kyiv Boryspil International Airport.
Such deals have been signed via a Memorandum of Understanding, as the war in the country has to come to a conclusion at this current stage.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Preparations for Kyiv Boryspil Airport Reconstruction Underway…
Aecom has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Kyiv Boryspil International Airport, valued at £367.6m for the rebuild of the airport.
As per The New Civil Engineer, the firm contracted for the rebuild has experience in post-war construction dating back to Iraq, Afghanistan and Bosnia.
It is understood that the agreement will consist of Aercom providing asset condition and capability assessment, design engineering, program management and construction management to Kyiv Boryspil International Airport.
Commenting on the deal was Aecom CEO Troy Rudd:
“With our program management and aviation capabilities, we look forward to working with Boryspil International Airport to restore this strategically important airport and Ukraine’s aviation sector.”
“We are proud to extend our support to the reconstruction of Ukraine with this partnership to restore the nation’s aviation sector – supporting the flow of critical resources and investment to drive recovery.”
Adding to this was Oleksiy Dubrevskyy, the Director General of Kyiv Boryspil International Airport:
“The memorandum marks another important milestone for the recovery of Ukraine’s aviation sector.
“We recognise the benefits of Aecom’s programmatic approach and eagerly anticipate collaborating with them to realise our restoration plans.”
Kyiv Boryspil International Airport used to handle around 9.5m passengers per year, and this is the sort of foundation that they will want to restart operations with.
Looking ahead, all eyes will be on when the rebuild begins, as well as what that will look like for the airfield in a bit more greater detail.
But what remains clear is that infrastructure rebuilds are starting to be thought about by the Ukrainian government, especially in the context of what a post-war country will look like.
