Germany’s Siemens has been awarded a QR45.2m ($12.4m) contract for the energy management systems to be installed at the Hamad Port in Qatar.

The contract calls for the supply of a fully-integrated substation, according to Siemens. It entails the supply, installation, testing and commissioning of 22kV switchgears, 22kV transformers, low voltage switchgears, protection and power management systems.

The contract was awarded to Siemens by the project’s main contractor, a joint venture of local Teyseer Contracting Company and Lebanon’s Consolidated Contractors Group.

Siemens is supplying Hamad Port with its E-House energy management product, which it describes as a “customised, fully-equipped modular power substations for a fast and reliable power supply.” As a modular substation system, it allows for relatively fast and easy installation and upgrades.

New Port Project Executive Director Maisar Jamil El-Qutami said the product will help them reduce required civil works and installation on site.

Hamad Port is expected to open before end 2016.
