Habtoor Leighton Group (HLG) has won a $608m contract to build mega-reservoirs and pumping stations planed as part of Qatar's Mega-Reservoirs project.

The company has been appointed by Qatar's Electricity and Water Authority, Kahramaa, to build, test and commission five reservoirs as well as pumping stations, pipework, and civil, structure and MEP works for one of its Primary Reservoir and Pumping Stations at Rawdat Rashed.

HLG said that this is the seventh project awarded to its Qatar arm, Leighton Contracting (Qatar), by Kahramaa following the construction of two other reservoirs at Duhail and Umm Qarn and for the pipework for the Doha Mega Reservoir last year.

HLG CEO Jose Lopez-Monis said: "Qatar is a very important market for HLG. Securing repeat business from key government clients demonstrates that HLG remains a preferred contractor to clients to whom we have demonstrated our ability to deliver complex projects safely, on time and to budget."

The Mega-Reservoirs project has been designed for Kahramaa by engineering consultancy Hyder, which was last year bought by Arcadis for $483.3m.

HLG is a joint venture between the UAE's Al Habtoor Group (which holds a 55% stake in the business) and Australia's Leighton Contractors (45%).
