The desalination plant is planned by the Qatar General Electricity & Water Corporation (Kahramaa)
at Qatar Economic Zone 3 (QEZ3) south of Al-Wakrah Municipality.
The plant, designed in the form of an Independent Power & Water Plant (IPWP), has a capacity of 130 million imperial gallons per day. Kahramaa is simultaneously implementing a transmission pipeline to convey water from the desalination plant to identified interconnection points of the Kahramaa central distribution system and Reservoir & Pumping Station (RPS) system.
Kahramaa is also laying two parallel desalinated water transmission pipelines (each 1,600 mm in diameter) to be interconnected, on a one-to-one basis, to two water delivery points extending from the pumping station of the desalination plant. This project involves the design of ductile iron pipelines approximately 71 km long and 600 mm to 1,600 mm in diameter. The project also involves a hydraulic study and a surge analysis of the pipeline’s complete piping system and its associated piping (existing).
ECG’s scope of work covers a number of studies, as well as preliminary design and detailed design.
