Ashghal has completed the construction of a new pumping station and Treated Sewerage Effluent (TSE) plant in the Labour City in Mesaimeer.
It is expected to serve at least 75,000 workers who are likely to be housed at the accommodation in the coming months, a statement from the Public Works Authority has said.
The works were part of the four packages of the pumping station construction and rehabilitation projects, comprising the construction and upgrading of 27 pump stations and 18 rising mains spread across Doha, Al Wakrah, Al Rayyan and Saliya. The whole work is likely to be completed within five-and-a-half years.
In line with the Qatari Labour Law's requirements, the utility renovations in the Labour City will provide a proper sanitary sewerage handling system, catering to the health and welfare of the workers.
The Labour City’s new constructions had a total value of approximately QR 61.7mn while the budget for the construction of the multi-phase pump station and its upgrading would come to about QR1.1bn.
The completed pump station along with the 5km-long rising main would discharge the sewage out of the Labour City into the Industrial Treatment Plant with a maximum capacity of 417 litres per second.
The 3km-long TSE line was constructed to supply irrigation water to the Labour City landscape.
