(MENAFN) Hochtief AG, a German construction firm, said that it has signed an agreement with Bahrain Airport Company (BAC) to set up a joint venture, which will provide facility management at Bahrain International Airport, Reuters reported.

The new entity, Hochtief Facility Management Bahrain Airport, will be set up at a cost of $115 million. Hochtief AG said the contract marks a further internationalization of its service business.

The agreement will run for six years, with an option to be extended for another five, the company said in a statement.
