Qatar General Electricity & Water Corp (Kahramaa) has awarded Dubai-based Habtoor Leighton Group (HLG) a QR1.09bn contract for the construction of pipelines for two sections of Doha’s Mega Reservoir Corridor Main 1 (Packages A & B), Gulf Times has reported. Under the contract, HLG is responsible for the supply, installation, testing and commissioning of 120km of 1600mm diameter ductile iron pipes and fittings. Works also include trench excavation, back-filling and construction of all valve chambers. The deal brings the total value of new project awards to HLG during 2014 to $2bn, close to doubling HLG’s December 2013 work in hand to $4.48bn.
