TRUJILLO (PERU), INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT PROJECT DEVELOPMENT
Airports of Peru [Aeropuertos de Perú – AdP] has entrusted the Efebearquitectura – Ineco-CEMOSA consortium with the construction specifications and tracking in the tendering phase of the Capitan FAP Carlos Martínez de Pinillos International Airport expansion, in the district of Huanchaco, 10 kilometres from the city of Trujillo on Peru’s north coast. The goal is to meet expected passenger traffic growth, which, according to AdP, has increased by 13% on average annually since the beginning of the concession in 2006.
Expansion of the Capitan FAP Carlos Martinez de Pinillos International Airport will cost approximately 44 million dollars, revealed Evans Avendaño, Aeropuertos del Peru (AdP) general manager, after signing the agreement with the Consortium for the preparation of the project’s technical dossier, in which Governor Manuel Llempén Coronel also participated.
The design includes the construction of new passenger and cargo terminals, expansion of the apron and taxiways, and new auxiliary facilities (a fire station, sewage treatment plant, services block, etc). In terms of physical objectives, it will feature a 10,500 m2 passenger terminal, a new air cargo terminal, a parking lot for 300 vehicles, a commercial platform for general aviation and cargo for 8 aircraft, a fuel plant, a sanitary block for solid waste management and facilities for ramp equipment.
Trujillo, with nearly one million inhabitants, is the third largest city in the country and boasts Peru’s pre-Inca cultures’ rich cultural and archaeological heritage.
