The Habtoor Leighton Group (HLG) has been awarded a contract valued at approx. USD 300M for the construction of pipelines for two sections of Doha’s Mega Reservoir Corridor Main 1 (Packages A & B) for KAHRAMAA – Qatar’s General Electricity and Water Corporation.
HLG, operating as Leighton Contracting (Qatar) WLL, is responsible for the supply, installation, testing and commissioning of 120km of 1600mm diameter ductile iron pipes and fittings. Works also include trench excavation, backfilling and construction of all valve chambers. The pipelines project is the fifth project awarded to HLG by KAHRAMAA. The Group’s first project for KAHRAMAA was for the construction of the Duhail and Umm Qarn Reservoirs in 2009. A further contract for the construction of two reservoirs and associated works in Shahaniya was secured in 2010 and, in 2012, HLG secured the contract for the construction of the Al Kaaban reservoir and pipeline, as well as a reservoirs project.
HLG CEO and Managing Director, José Antonio López-Monís, said the pipelines project is aligned with HLG’s core capabilities and the award validated the high value placed by the client on the capabilities and proven performance of the Group.
