Central airconditioning and commercial refrigeration major, Blue Star Limited has successfully executed the airconditioning as well as plumbing works of the integrated Terminal Building, Terminal 2 of the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA), Mumbai. Terminal 2, also known as T2 has commenced operations today.
CSIA is one of India’s busiest airports with passenger traffic of over 30 million per year.
CSIA has three domestic terminals at Santa Cruz and two international terminals at Sahar in operation.
Mumbai International Airport Pvt. Ltd. (MIAL), a joint venture between the GVK led consortium (74%) and Airports Authority of India (26%), was awarded the mandate of modernising and upgrading Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA) in 2006.
MIAL’s master plan was to build the integrated terminal with a vision and framework to modernise this airport as one of the best airports in the world. The separate international and domestic facilities have been merged into the new integrated terminal building, T2. T2 is spread across 4.4 million sq feet and is equipped to cater to 40 million passengers per annum.
The works of the new integrated Terminal Building was split into two phases. While Blue Star was awarded the contract to aircondition the South West Pier in early 2010, it later won the contract to execute airconditioning as well as plumbing works of T2 valued at about Rs 150 crores.
Blue Star’s scope of work comprised supply, installation, testing, commissioning, handover, training, maintenance and warranty of all airconditioning as well as the plumbing services. The equipment supplied included air handling units, cooling towers, pumps, ducting, piping, insulation, ventilation fans, electrical panels and building management systems.
Vir S Advani, Executive Director & President- Electro Mechanical Projects Business adds, “Blue Star is proud to be part of this momentous occasion wherein the Company has played a role in the transformation of CSIA to one of the best airports in the world. Blue Star’s seamless turnkey MEP solutions, superior project management skills and impressive track- record of on-time completion have been the key to this achievement.”
The other airport projects that Blue Star has airconditioned till date include Aurangabad, Ahmedabad, Thiruvananthapuram, Mangalore, Nagpur, Jaipur, Amritsar, Madurai, Dehradun, Varanasi, Raipur, Goa and Pune.”
