Terna signs Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport construction contract


Terna, a 100% subsidiary of GEK Terna Group, has been awarded the contract for the construction and refurbishment of Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport in Serbia as part of a Vinci-Terna joint venture.

The five-year construction project has a budget of €262m (US$298m) and will include a series of infrastructure overhauls aimed at developing and upgrading the airport’s capacity and operating conditions, enabling airlines to offer new routes and increase passenger and cargo traffic in line with Serbia’s economic growth.

Works include a new 42,000m² (452,000ft²) passenger terminal building, refurbishment of the existing 15,000m² (161,000ft²) terminal facilities, construction of a new 3,500m (11,482m) runway, refurbishment of the existing 3,400m (11,154ft) runway, construction of nine taxiways and expansion of the existing apron, and construction of new apron infrastructure with a total surface area of 55,000m² (180,000ft²).

Terna will also build a new car park with 2,400 spaces and curbside/sidewalk infrastructure and facilities for departures/arrivals handling. Auxiliary building facilities and other infrastructure works such as waste water and solid waste treatment plants, a heating plant, a meteorological station and a solar panel plant, among others, are also included in the plans.
