Riyadh Airports Company has awarded a contract to engineering service provider Egis to deliver design and project management consultancy services at Terminal 5 of King Khaled International Airport. The company will focus its efforts on revamping the terminal’s Hold Baggage Screening (HBS) machines.
Egis’ team will work to design and oversee the project, along with offering cost management services, for the HBS machine replacements at four check-in stations within the terminal.
Commenting on the contract, Jacques Khoriaty, director of Aviation Middle East at Egis, said: “Through this new contract Riyadh Airports Company is restating confidence in our extended capabilities on both airside and terminal projects and full range expertise from consultancy, design, procurement support, and project and construction management.”
He added: “We are delighted to provide continued guidance and support to our client with a specific focus on safety and operational efficiency. Terminal 5 will remain operational during HBS machines replacement and our consultants and our engineers will closely coordinate with all contractors to make sure operations run smoothly until final commissioning.”
The project is the latest development in an ongoing five-year collaboration between Egis and the Riyadh Airports Company. The engineering services provider has worked closely with the airport operator to support its transformation.
This includes airside upgrades of taxiways and apron, passenger boarding bridges, as well as 400Hz power units.
