Kuwait’s Ministry of Electricity and Water (MOEW) has awarded two annual maintenance contracts, valued at around US $63 million, for power and water plants in west and east Doha.
The contracts, signed by MOEW Minister Abdulaziz Al-Ibrahim,
include periodic maintenance works, and the replacement of mechanical equipment parts and appliances to ensure the continued stability of operations at both plants.
Under the contracts, work is scheduled to be completed in 60 months.
Power demand in Kuwait is increasing by between seven and ten percent per year, with current projections that national peak load demand will reach 25,000 MW by the end of 2025.
