New North Bali Airport Pre-Tender Event To Replace Groundbreak Ceremony
Officials behind the construction of the new North Bali Airport have announced a change to the event purpose, which will now be a pre-tender event for those interested in working on the project.
Bali, Indonesia – The 'North Bali International Airport Consortium' has announced a decision to change the date and theme of their planned presentation ceremony, originally scheduled for 28th August 2017.
With all the excitement surrounding proposals for the major private airport venture, the consortium felt the event needed to attract companies wanting to pledge their interest in working on the project, in order to progress with the project swiftly and in line with the timetable. The new event will now take place on 28th September 2017 as a pre-tender event, which will welcome interested companies to register tenders for the innovative development.
The North Bali International Airport (NBIA) Consortium have organised the pre-tender conference into two parts: the first day being an opportunity to learn about the development plans for the airport and the second two days consisting of B2B meetings, whereby companies will have the opportunity to present their business capabilities in addition to asking questions about the project.
As originally planned for the earlier event, the new conference will still play host to special guests and dignitaries, in particular: President Joko Widodo of Indonesia, Governor Mangku Pastika of Bali, the Minister of Transportation Budikarya and many international officials.
The NBIA consortium are excited to present the proposal for the development of the second largest airport in Indonesia, which originally aims to see 32 million passengers a year using its facilities. Companies wishing put in their tender to work on its construction will inevitably feel fortunate to have the possible opportunity to work on such a pioneering design: the North Bali International Airport is located in the sea of Kubutambahan, Buleleng region near Singarajah; a huge proportion of the airport will be built on a platform over the sea.
Phase 2 of the development will see the airport being the first in the world to have a Reinforced Hybrid MVLFS platform (Mega Very Large Floating Structure). The largest benefit of having such a platform is that the airport can be extended in the future without harming the environment.
Companies wishing to put in their tender for the NBIA project can only do so if they have attended the event on 28th September 2017. After the B2B meetings, companies will each be given an electronic token and registration code to allow them access to the electronic data room where they can download their tenders.

Their union to complete the $2.7 billion project has been approved in order to reduce congestion at Denpaser Airport but also as a pioneering model of how airports in the future might operate. Being situated in Buleleng allows the airport to fully utilise the sea for: space, cooling, electrolysis in order to produce hydrogen and for plutonic geothermal energy production. The construction of the airport is only part of the overall plans for an aerotropolis named THKON to be developed, creating homes and jobs for the inhabitants of North Bali.
