Transmission Pipelines Associated with QEZ 3 Desalination Plant

Project Description

The extensive developments currently under way across the State of Qatar create surging demand for potable water production. Such a fast-growing demand on potable water, as well as emergency potable water, can only be fulfilled through the implementation of water desalination projects.
The Qatar General Electricity & Water Corporation (Kahramaa) has thus planned the construction of a desalination plant at Qatar Economic Zone 3 (QEZ3) south of Al-Wakrah Municipality. Constructed in the form of an
Independent Power & Water Plant (IPWP), the prospective desalination plant 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.
