VINCI wins contract to build a pumping station in Qatar

Mar 27, 2009

Through a consortium made up of subsidiaries VINCI Construction Grands Projets (leader), Entrepose Contracting and QDVC (a Qatari subsidiary owned 49% by VINCI Construction Grands Projets and 51% by Qatari Diar), VINCI has signed a contract with the Doha Public Works Authority, PWA Ashghal, to build a pumping station to the north of Doha, capital of Qatar.

The contract, worth €358 million, calls for building a pumping station with a capacity of 900,000 cubic metres/day and laying over 45 km of pipeline with a diameter of 1,600 millimetres. The station will be used to channel Doha’s wastewater to a treatment plant currently under construction 25 km to the north of the city.

Work has started on the 22nd of March 2009 and takes 33 months to complete.

The contract draws on synergies between the VINCI Group’s various areas of expertise (pipe laying, water processing and civil engineering at VINCI Construction Grands Projets; and pumping and electromechanical engineering at Entrepose Contracting), as well as QDVC’s strong local presence. It is the biggest hydraulic engineering contract ever won by VINCI Construction Grands Projets.
