About eight international companies submitted bids in early 2004 for the work, which calls for: a 220/66/11-kV substation at Abu Hammour north; a 220/66/11-kV substation known as Doha central; a 132/66/11-kV substation at Maither central; a 132/66/11-kV substation at Duhail; and a 66/11-kV substation at Doha’s vegetable market.

Kahramaa has already awarded the distribution management system (DMS) package on the project to France’s Areva T&D(MEED 21:5:04).

The consultant is the UK’s PB Power.
