AML is launching new bid for cargo zone at SSR airport

Important changes are to be made before a second call for bids for master developer

The construction project of a New Cargo Zone and New Freeport Zone at Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport, Plaisance are quite advanced, still in progress.

However, concerned over quality, AML is launching a second bid for a ‘master developer’ as the response to the first one did not meet the expectations.

“We are putting emphasis on quality and value for money,” said a source to The Independent on Tuesday.

Important changes are to be made before a second call for bids for master developer.

The AML direction will analyse ways to reduce the investment cost.

The aim is to revamp the project despite the tough economic context. The technicians in charge are doubling their efforts to deliver the goods within the time limit, by 2012 despite the mega- size of the projects.

Statistics compiled by AML in 2009 state that around 45,000 metric tons of freight have landed at Plaisance.

This number is expected to hike by 37 per cent by 2015 to reach 62 000 metric tons.

In 2025, it is expected to reach 90 000 metric tons. Keeping this in mind, the current infrastructure will definitely not be able cope up with the situation.

AML plans to situate the New Cargo Zone over 175 000 square metres, it will be equipped with the latest technology to ensure rapid and quality service as well.
