KEPPEL Infrastructure Holdings' wholly owned Keppel Seghers Engineering Singapore has handed over its second landmark project in Qatar to the client with effect from July 5, 2016.
With the handover of the sludge treatment facilities in the Doha North Sewage Treatment Works (DNSTW), the 10-year operations and maintenance (O&M) contract has commenced under Keppel Infrastructure Services, also wholly owned by Keppel Infrastructure which is a division of Keppel Corp.
Keppel Seghers had already achieved a substantial handover of the DNSTW to the client in December 2015.
The DNSTW is a design-build-operate project awarded by Ashghal, the Public Works Authority of Qatar. As a wastewater treatment, water reuse and sludge treatment facility, it has the capacity to treat up to an average flow of 245,000 cubic metre of wastewater per day and is the largest in Qatar.
The other project designed and built by Keppel Seghers in Qatar was the solid waste management centre which was handed over in October 2011, following which the contract moved into a 20-year O&M phase.
