    Description
    Objectives

    The project concerns the expansion and upgrade of Bergen-Flesland Airport (Bergen, BGO) in order to cater for future growth in traffic and to improve passenger service standards. The airport, which is the second busiest airport in Norway, is located 19km south of Bergen city centre, on the west Norwegian coast, and handled 6.2 million passengers in 2014.

    The project will provide additional terminal infrastructure and will improve the level of service offered by the existing facilities which are operating above capacity and with many of the airport subsystems heavily congested during peak periods. It includes the construction of a new Terminal 3 and its associated airside and landside facilities, including a light rail station that will improve the public transport link between the airport and the city centre.

    Environmental aspects
    Procurement

    A project of this type would normally be classified under Annex II of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive 2011/92/EC, meaning that the competent authority makes the decision as to whether a formal EIA is required or not. This, and the status of any pre-existing development consents, will be reviewed and assessed during project appraisal.

    The Bank will require the promoter to ensure that contracts for the implementation of the project have been/shall be tendered in accordance with the relevant applicable EU procurement legislation (Directives 2004/18/EC and/or 2004/17/EC as well as Directives 89/665/EEC and 92/13/EEC) as interpreted by the Court of Justice of the EU, with publication of tender notices in the EU Official Journal, as and where required.

    Disclaimer

    Before financing approval by the Board of Directors, and before loan signature, projects are under appraisal and negotiation. The data provided on this page is therefore indicative and cannot be considered to represent official EIB policy (see also the Explanatory notes).
