Built to withstand extreme climatic conditions and larger aircraft
NUBIA was designed with a robust 3,600 m-long category-4E runway, which is to be constructed from concrete. As a result, the runway can withstand the harsh conditions of the extreme continental climate. Furthermore, it will be able to handle large aircraft such as the Boeing 747 or the Airbus A340. The new location, advanced design and technical installations will help to improve the safety and the potential of the airport facility. NUBIA has been designed to take 3 million passengers a year, three times more than Chhingis Khaan International Airport, and it will even be able to handle ten times more cargo. The contract for the entire construction work was awarded to Samsung C&T. Sungdo Construction, a long-standing WIRTGEN customer based in South Korea, was selected as the subcontractor for the concrete paving work.
