Tocumen SA says Terminal 2 will be completed, Odebrecht files appeal

Tocumen SA said that it will exercise the legal resources allowed by law to achieve the completion of Terminal 2.
The construction company Norberto Odebrecht SA filed an appeal before the Administrative Court of Public Contracts, after Tocumen SA canceled the contract for the execution of the expansion of the air terminal for breach of the agreed obligations.

The Brazilian construction company was disqualified for breach of contract, which prevents its participation in tenders and contracting with the Panamanian State.

Tocumen SA said that it will exercise the legal resources allowed by law to achieve the completion of Terminal 2 .

He reiterated that since February 2020 Terminal 2 has registered 99% progress, and at the end of October 1, 2021, the work is still incomplete according to the contractual obligations, with pending keys and necessary corrections for the operation, safety, and comfort of the passengers. .

" Noncompliance and delays by the contractor to deliver the work to 100% generates income losses for Tocumen, SA and the opportunity to create hundreds of new and permanent jobs for the operation, maintenance, commercial exploitation and tourist businesses in Terminal 2 " , says a statement from Tocumen SA

Odebrecht assured that it has not breached the contract for the expansion of the Tocumen Airport, and that the substantial delivery of the work was completed in February 2020.
