HLG wins contract for Qatar ‘mega reservoir'
The Habtoor Leighton Group (HLG) has been awarded a US$608M contract for the construction of Mega Reservoir Primary Reservoir and Pumping Stations (PRPS) 3 for KAHRAMAA - Qatar's General Electricity and Water Corporation.
HLG, operating as Leighton Contracting (Qatar) WLL, will be responsible for the construction, testing and commissioning of 5 reservoirs as well as pumping stations, pipework and mechanical, electrical, civil, structural, architectural and external work for the 100 hectare PRPS facility at Rawdat Rashed. The reservoirs, with a capacity of 100 million gallons each, are the largest reinforced concrete reservoirs in the world.
This is the seventh project awarded to HLG by KAHRAMAA. The Group’s first project for KAHRAMAA was in 2009 for the construction of the Duhail and Umm Qarn Reservoirs. The most recent contracts awarded by KAHRAMAA were for the construction of Pipelines for Doha’s Mega Reservoir in 2014 and the construction of the KAHRAMAA Central Workshop with a revenue of QR351 million, also in 2014.
HLG CEO and Managing Director, José Antonio López-Monís, said the Mega Reservoir project is aligned with HLG’s core capabilities and the award validated the high value placed by the client on the capabilities and proven performance of the Group.
“Qatar is a very important market for HLG,” said Lopez-Monis. “We have had a local office in Doha since 2005, and during this time we have been involved in a number of projects perfectly aligned with our expertise and experience.
“Securing repeat business from key government clients demonstrates that HLG remains a preferred contractor for clients to whom we have demonstrated our ability to deliver complex projects, safely, on time and on budget.”
The project will start this month and is scheduled for completion in mid-2018.
The Habtoor Leighton Group (HLG) was formed in 2007 following the merger of the UAE's premier building contractor, Al Habtoor Engineering with Gulf Leighton, the Leighton Group's original operating company in the Gulf region.
