Saint-Gobain wins $268.7mn Qatar contract.
French building materials company Saint Gobain PAM has announced that it has won a pair of supply deals worth 200mn ($268.7mn) from Qatari contractor Al Jabar Engineering to supply large diameter pipes, fittings and valves.

The products, which will be made by Saint Gobain in France and shipped to Qatar, will be used on Qatar's plan to build five "Security Mega-Reservoirs" across the country to ensure it has an emergency supply of drinking water capably of lasting at least seven days.

The project was initiated by Qatar General Electricity and Water Corporation (Kahramaa), with Hyder providing design and site supervision assistance.

Tenders to build five out of nine proposed reservoirs at Umm Birka, Umm Slal, Al Thumama, Rawdhat Rashid and Abu Nakhla, were floated in April.

The works packages also include materials supply, construction, testing and commissioning of the reservoirs, pipework, mechanical, electrical, ICA (instrumentation, control and automation), civil, structural and architectural works.

Pumping stations are also being built from the Ras Abu Fontas and Facility D desalination plants to the south of Doha to the Ras Laffan desalination plants in the north of Qatar.

The reservoirs are being linked by a 200km-long network of large diameter ring mains.

A fast-track design, procurement and construction sequence has been initiated with a view to the project being completed in 2017.
