About the Grantee
The Grantee is the Autoridad Aeroportuaria de Guayaquil – Fundación de la Muy Ilustre Muncipalidad de Guayaquil (“AAG”), which was established by the Municipality of Guayaquil to oversee the concession contract for the José Joaquín de Olmedo International Airport and to promote the successful construction and development of the new Guayaquil International Airport.
The new Guayaquil International Airport is a greenfield airport project that would replace the existing José Joaquín de Olmedo International Airport to serve as the gateway airport for Guayaquil, the largest city in Ecuador. As the entity responsible for oversight of the current airport concession and the construction and management of the new Guayaquil International Airport, AAG is interested in developing an airport sustainability and energy efficiency plan through this Technical Assistance to minimize the new airport’s environmental footprint.
About the Technical Assistance
The Technical Assistance will identify and recommend key sustainable areas for the design, construction, and operation of the airport, including with respect to construction methods, waste management and recycling processes, water quality and conservation, air quality and emissions reduction, and airport connectivity and transportation links. The Technical Assistance will also identify renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies to foster airport sustainability, as well as smart technologies to enhance airport operations and passenger and cargo processing. In addition, the Technical Assistance will assess the incorporation of solar power and other renewable energy resources at the new airport.
