Indian multinational group A Tech Wabag (Wabag) has been awarded a QR275-million ($75 million) engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for the rehabilitation of Doha South Sewage Treatment Works project.
Wabag, a pioneer in the pure-play water technology sector based in India, said the design-and-build project was awarded by Qatar’s public works authority Asghal for the development of the plant located south of Doha in Qatar.
The scope of work includes the rehabilitation of Doha South Sewage Treatment Works using lamella clarifier, disc filter and aerobic digester technology to treat the additional sewage generated by the football stadium, which is under construction for the Fifa World Cup 2022, said a statement from the company.

Wabag CEO (Middle East & Africa) Deep Raj Saxena said: “Pleased with the momentum we are gaining in the Middle East region. This order will further consolidate our presence and will help us in building another significant reference in the region.
