Japans Fujita Corporation has awarded the UAEs Drake & Scull a QR340m ($93m) mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) contract on the Doha Metro.
Fujita is building the depots and stabling yard for the first phase of the metros Red and Green lines. The rail division of Drake & Scull International (DSI) will supply, install, test and commission all MEP building services for both the depot and stabling yard on the Red and Green lines, along with their associated buildings. The works are expected to be completed by 2019.
DSI will also be actively involved in the design verification process as a participant in the design review meetings, the firm said.
The Doha Metro contract is the second MEP project within the GCCs rail sector that Drake & Scull has won. The company previously won the MEP contract for the airport passenger-mover at the Dubai airport.
Ahmad al-Naser, managing director at Drake & Scull Engineering, said the company will use the experience it has gained from working on schemes such as the Jubilee Line extension and the Stratford and Ebbsfleet train stations in the UK to ensure the successful delivery of its Doha Metro contract.
