Based on the qualification, the construction of the international airport terminal, which is being built in Oviedo, was awarded to the “Bidder/Proponent Acciona Construcción, S.A., the project object of this Open Bidding process, for complying with all the technical and economic requirements requested by the Pro-Pedernales Trust indicated in the Specifications and its respective annexes”.

Although the bidding calendar established that the contract would be signed 20 days after the notification of the award, which was ordered to be made on March 4 by resolution of the Technical Management Unit, the work has not started, despite the fact that the general director of the Pirvadas Public Partnerships, Sigmund FreundHe had announced that the first sting would take place in March.

The members of the Technical Management Unit are made up of: Francisco García, Project Advisor of the Ministry of the Presidency; Ornella Orberto Méndez, Financial Advisor of the Pro-Pedernales Trust; Joel Ramírez, Legal Advisor of the Ministry of the Presidency and Eliardo Cairo Benoit, director of the Technical Subdirectorate of the DGAPP, and also authorized on that date, through the same resolution, the Banreservas Trust to prepare and sign the contract with the awarded company.

It is recalled that the Cabo Rojo International Airport, Pedernales, will be built in the Los Tres Charcos community of Oviedo, where the Government began clearing work in November 2023. By that date, it had been announced that the amount of the new international airport would be RD$2,245 million pesos.

The terminal would be the starting point for international flights that would bring the long-awaited tourists to Pedernales to the hotels that are being built.
