Colombian consortium Aerotocumen, formed by cement manufacturer Conconcreto and construction-engineering firm Grupo Odinsa, won the tender to remodel Panama City's Tocumen international airport, Colombian paper Portafolio reported. The contract includes the construction of a new terminal, an administrative building, access works and a fuel distribution network at a cost of US$68.65mn, the report said. Aerotocumen submitted the lowest offer, but two competitors - Spanish Constructora San José and Brazil's Odebrecht - have asked that Aerotocumen be disqualified, claiming the consortium does not meet certain prerequisites specified in the bidding rules, including legal stipulations and an adequate number of personnel, the report said.
