Habtoor Leighton Group (HLG) has won a QR 2.2 billion (USD $608m) contract to build the world’s largest reinforced concrete reservoirs. Nicknamed the ‘Qatar mega reservoirs project’, the project involves the construction, testing and commissioning of five 100-million gallon capacity reservoirs, as well as new pumping stations.

 

Additionally, HLG will also be responsible for pipework, mechanical, electrical, civil, structural, architectural and external work for the 100-acre facility, located in Rawdat Rashed. The contract has been awarded by Qatar General Electricty and Water Corporation (Kahramaa).

 

The project has been designed by Hyder and is the seventh project Kahramaa has awarded to HLG following the construction of the likes of the Duhail and Umm Qarn Reservoirs, plus pipeline work at Doha’s Mega reservoir.

 

Jose Antonio Lopez-Monis, HLG’s CEO and Managing Director, said: “Qatar is a very important market for us. We have had a local office in Doha since 2005, and during this time we have been involved in a number projects perfectly aligned with our expertise and experience.

 

“Securing repeat business from key government clients demonstrates that HLG remains a preferred contractor to clients to whom we have demonstrated our ability to deliver complex projects safely, on time and on budget.”

 

HLG is a joint venture between UAE-based Habtoor Group (who own the majority share at 55%) and Australian Leighton Contractors.
