Qatar General Electricity and Water Corp (Kahramaa) has said the cost of the project to build over 20 huge reservoirs at five strategic sites, is likely to overrun by up to 15% from the initial estimates of QR11bn ($3bn), due to increasing cost of raw materials, including sand, cement, bitumen, the Peninsula has reported. Kahramaa is to build four to five reservoirs in Umm Birka, Umm Slal, Rawdat Rashed, Abu Nakla and Umm Thumama, and they will be adjacent to Qatar National Utility Corridor from Ras Laffan to Ras Abu Fontas. “The project is the first of its kind in the world, which will have the world’s largest man-made reservoirs providing water security in case of emergency in the Arabian Gulf,” said Mohammed Al Mansoori, manager of water projects department, technical affairs at Kahramaa.
