Heisco selected for new fuel oil pipeline

18 August 2006
The Central Tenders Committee (CTC) has approved the bid of KD 37 million ($128 million) submitted by the local Heavy Engineering Industries & Shipbuilding Company (Heisco) for the contract to build two new liquid fuel oil pipelines from the Mina al-Ahmadi refinery to the Doha west power and desalination plant. The client, the Ministry of Energy (Electricity & Water), is expected to sign the contract soon (MEED 25:11:05).
The scope of works on

the two-year engineering,

procurement and construction (EPC) contract calls for

the supply and installation

of two 130-kilometre-long

steel pipelines to supply feedstock for the existing

Doha cogeneration complex and any planned new capacity at

the site.

Heisco beat off competition from 10 other local and international contractors. Basic engineering on the pipelines was carried out by the UK's Penspen International.
