As part of Qatar's ongoing development and to effectively meet expected potable water demand increases, the Gulf nation is seeking to improve potable water services by executing various replacement, upgrading, and extension works to some distillate and rising mains.
The Kahramaa Head Works Consultancy Services were provided through three separate packages. The first package involved the use of micro-tunneling to transmit potable water from a new desalination plant to various water stations in and around Doha through an 80 km transmission pipeline with a diameter of 1,600 mm. The second package called for the construction of two new concrete reservoirs with capacities ranging from 6-9 MIG, while the third package engaged in the construction of six new concrete reservoirs with a capacity of 6 MIG each. Packages components included pipelines with diameters ranging from 300-1,200 mm and lengths spanning from 20-70 km; a pump station; related civil works; connections to existing pipes; fiber optic cable networks; and flow control systems.
