UK-based Brown & Root North Africahas taken a four- year project management consultancy (PMC) contract to supervise the design and construction of the fourth phase of the great manmade river (GMR) project. Phase 4 involves the development of a new wellfield in the Ghadames area in the west of the country and the construction of a 620-kilometre pipeline from the wellfield to the coastal region between Tripoli and the Tunisian border. The 250,000-cubic-metre-a-day (cm/d) conveyor will provide drinking water to more than 1.25 million residents in Zuara, Zawiya and towns along the route of the pipeline. The local Al-Nahr Company won the contract last year to develop the field and to manufacture and install the pipeline (MEED 1:10:04).
