Doha North will have a phase 1 capacity of 227,300 cubic metres a day and will be capable of
serving a population of 844,000. The plant will also have the
provision for future expansion to serve 1.1 million residents.

Ashghal will let the Doha North contract on a design and build and operation and maintenance (O&M) basis.

The 30-month design and build component will be followed by a 10-year O&M element. A contract award is expected in early 2007.

The consultant on the project is the UK’s Hyder (MEED 17:2:06; 11:11:05).
