Qatar hands out $619mn sewerage deals
Bouygues and Urbacon to design and construct tunnels in Doha.
French firm Bouygues Construction has been chosen to build sewerage tunnels in Qatar.
Qatar's Public Works Authority awarded two contracts for the design and construction of the tunnels to Bouygues Travaux Publics, in consortium with Urbacon Trading and Contracting.
The deals are worth a combined EUR 550mn ($619.4mn), of which Bouygues Travaux Publics' share amounts to roughly EUR 285mn, according to a company statement.
The northern section, called MTS01, will be 16km and is three meters wide. The southern section, called MTS03, will measure 14km and 4.5 meters wide.
These contracts form part of Qatar's strategic project, Inner Doha Resewerage Implementation Strategy (IDRIS), for collecting, pumping, and treat Doha South wastewater.
Work on the project began this summer, with handover scheduled for 2019.
