Leighton Contracting Qatar wins deal to build ten new multi-million gallon reservoirs across Qatar
Qatar General Electricity and Water Corporation (Kahramaa) has awarded Leighton Contracting Qatar, a subsidiary of Australia’s HLG, the contract to carry out the work at Al Duhail and Umm Qarn reservoir and pumping stations.
According to the terms of the deal, Leighton Contracting Qatar is to build nine new six-million gallon reservoirs at Umm Qarn and one 25-million gallon reservoir at Al Duhail, along with associated aspects including mechanical, electrical and plumbing work, pipes, roads and landscaping.
This is the fourth project awarded to HLG by the state-owned utility since the group was picked in 2009 for the original $206.13m contract for the construction of the Duhail and Umm Qarn Reservoirs.
The new project will start immediately and is scheduled for completion in 12 months, the firm said.
