Doha North sewage contract awarded

02 February 2009
A consortium of France's Vinci Construction Grand Projects, QDVC, and Entrepose Contracting, also of France, has won the contract to build pumping stations and sewage pipes for the Doha North sewage treatment plant.

QDVC is a joint venture of Qatari Diar and Vinci.

The contract covers the construction of two deep pumping stations at a depth of 40 metres. It also includes the construction of three sewage pipelines each at a length of 3 kilometres. Work on the scheme is due to begin by the end of the first week of February.

The project is worth QR1.78bn ($489m). The client is the Public Works Authority (Ashghal).

With a capacity of 439,000 cubic metres a day, the Doha North wastewater treatment plant will be the largest in Qatar.

Singapore-based Keppel Seghers won the $1.5bn design, build and operate contract for the plant in September 2007.
