Qatar General Electricity & Water Corporation
“KAHRAMAA” managed to implement a model for electricity distribution substation
from a ready-made concrete in a record time by using the state of the art
modern construction technology.
This achievement comes within KAHRAMAA endeavor to
accelerate project completion as per the highest quality.
KAHRAMAA’s Electricity Networks Affairs investigated
ways to make use of all modern constructions techniques to reduce substation
construction period. It managed to construct a distribution substation in 35
days using the ready-made concrete instead of 90 days by the transitions ways. The
substation was constructed by moving and installing these elements using the
modern construction technology where many traditional construction stages were
escaped including (bricks, carpentry and armed blacksmithing works, pouring
concrete etc..). Working hours in the substation reached 350 hours without lost
time injury (LTI).
Setting substation design began in April after
approving architectural and construction designs, and getting the required
permissions from relevant authorities. Implementation started at the beginning
of May while the construction elements (concrete bases, walls, ceilings, etc.) were
prepared in a specialized factory. Construction works were completed in mid-June.
The site is well equipped and observes all security and safety standards.
This modern technology can be utilized to cope with
the rapid urban development the State witnesses and to accelerate customer
provision with electricity services. It comes within KAHRAMAA endeavor to
achieve its mission of providing high quality and sustainable electricity and
water for better living in Qatar. KAHRAMAA seeks to keep harmony among
economic, social, and environmental activities to achieve its development
objectives. This project is an outstanding achievement in electricity
