Refurbishing and Upgrading Pumping Stations, Doha, Qatar

Refurbishing and Upgrading Pumping Stations

Change and Development in All Aspects of Life

The State of Qatar is undergoing rapid transformation. To facilitate these advances, it is investing billions of dollars into infrastructure improvement, executing projects across both the public and private sectors. These projects range from constructing roads and buildings to developing ports and refurbishing existing pumping stations.

In January 2011, the Public Works Authority (PWA) awarded Parsons a consultancy services contract for refurbishing and upgrading 22 pumping stations in Doha, Qatar’s capital and most populous city. PWA selected Parsons based on our extensive project and construction management capabilities and our experience handling similar projects. In addition, our capabilities in all of the program’s required engineering disciplines were key to our selection.

Parsons’ role for the program involves performing design reviews and providing construction supervision and overall project management on behalf of PWA. Parsons is also responsible for project controls, as-built and operations/maintenance support, and handover and closeout.

Program Specifics

The program—a symbol of change and development—includes four stand-alone construction projects, each comprising three to seven pumping stations (22 pumping stations in all) in and around Doha, which is on the coast of the Persian Gulf. Key components of refurbishing the pumping stations include:

  • Internal/external refurbishment (civil works)
  • Pumps
  • Motor control center (MCC) transformers
  • Screens
  • Fire alarm systems
  • Diesel generators
  • Operator control units (OCUs)
  • Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA)

The project also includes new construction and upgrades to several kilometers of rising mains.

Fulfilling National Vision 2030

By 2030, the State of Qatar aims to be an advanced society capable of sustaining its development and providing a high standard of living for its people. Qatar National Vision 2030 defines long-term outcomes for the country and provides a framework within which national strategies and implementation plans can be developed. Refurbishing and upgrading pumping stations in Doha is an essential element of Qatar’s infrastructure improvement, and Parsons is pleased to continue assisting the PWA in delivering and managing projects that fulfill the promise of Qatar National Vision 2030.

With years of experience performing projects in Qatar and throughout the MEA (Middle East Africa) region, we have unsurpassed expertise in the area’s special requirements. And Parsons’ sustainable, less invasive, and environmentally friendly methods are ideal for solving complex wastewater problems.
