LEIGHTON HOLDINGS LIMITED AWARDED QAR1.09 BILLION (US$300 MILLION) PIPELINES PROJECT IN DOHA, QATAR

 
The Habtoor Leighton Group (HLG) has been awarded a contract valued at QAR1.09 billion (US$300 million) 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.
This contract brings the total value of new project awards to HLG during 2014 to AED7.4 billion (US$2 billion) – close to doubling HLG’s December 2013 work in hand to AED16.5 billion (US$4.48 billion).

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.

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

“Since 2009, HLG has been awarded QAR2.18 billion worth of contracts by KAHRAMAA. Our regionally-based team has an exceptional rapport with KAHRAMAA, and we expect this to continue well into the
future,” Mr López-Monís said.

The pipelines project commenced in June 2014 and is scheduled for completion in Q3, 2016.
