Goa launches tender for MOPA airport PPP

The Government of Goa, India, through the directorate of civil aviation, has issued a request for qualification (RFQ) for the Mopa international airport PPP project.

The airport will be developed in four phases:

  • Phase I - to be completed by 2020 and will cater to 4.4 million passengers;
  • Phase II- to be completed by 2025 and cater to 5.8 million passengers;
  • Phase III - to be completed by 2035 and will cater to 9.4 million passengers and
  • Phase IV- to be completed by 2045 and cater to 13.1 million passengers.

The project will be developed on a design, build, finance, operate and transfer (DBFOT) basis.

The total project investment, including the four phases, is estimated at Rs30 billion (US$732.6 million). The estimated investment for phase I of the project is Rs 15 billion (US$366.3 million)

To increase the viability of the project, the Authority may also provide a land parcel, admeasuring approximately 381 acres, adjoining the Airport for commercial development to be developed by the future concessionaire in accordance with the terms specified in the concession agreement.

Interested parties must submit their qualification documents on or before 12 December 2014.

Applicants must have experience in developing and operating airports, and a minimum net worth of Rs10 billion at the close of the preceding financial year.

In late July we reported that the Government of India had granted in-principle approval for development of the project.

Ammann and Whitney from the United states prepared the Master Plan and the Feasibility Study. A financial consultant, KPMG, and a technical consultant, Louis Berger, were appointed in March 2013 to analyze the feasibility of the project.

The new Mopa airport will enhance tourism in Goa, which is its primary industry. It handles about 13% of all foreign tourist arrivals in India. Goa is situated on the western coast of India, between the borders of Maharashtra and Karnataka.
