Qatar starts mega water project
Mega Reservoir PRPSs (Packages E), to be constructed in 36 months is located 30km from Doha and includes five main reservoirs with 496 thousand cubic meters, one pressure pump station, 33.2km long main pipes and auxiliary facilities
Qatar has launched its mega water supply engineering E-bid project, constructed by Chinese construction major CGGC.
The first node work includes 11.2km DN1200-1600mm pipe installation, covering 14 valve stations and 16 anchorage blocks along the line.
“The water supply line installation, the first node duration of this project, has been launched smoothly, 15 days earlier than planned, getting a good beginning of project management and laying a solid foundation for the overall project performance,” CGGC announced in China.
An integrated water supply system is to be formed once Mega Reservoir PRPSs, one of the largest reservoirs in the world, has been connected to seawater desalination plants around Mega Reservoir. The project will promote the safety of drinking water for local residents and advance local economic development. Mega Reservoir PRPSs (Packages E), to be constructed in 36 months is located 30km from Doha and includes five main reservoirs with 496 thousand cubic meters, one pressure pump station, 33.2km long main pipes and auxiliary facilities.
The project forms the part of Qatar General Electricity & Water Corporation’s (Kahramaa) key decision to launch an ambitious water project to provide strategic water storage within its network system.
The first phase of the project will provide the 7 days of storage for the expected water demand at horizon 2026, with 5 mega reservoir sites. The second phase will provide the seven days of water storage for expected demand in 2036 by adding additional reservoirs within the 5 mega reservoirs sites.The Peninsula
