Siemens helps power Qatar’s new Hamad Port

“This deal for the Hamad Port in Qatar is a significant continuation of our strong relationship with Qatar. Once completed later this year, the megaproject will bring considerable economic benefits to the country,” said Wolfgang Braun, Senior Executive Vice President, Energy Management, Siemens Middle East. “We are proud to be a part of this prestigious project that will use our comprehensive E-House solution and advanced technologies to help it run smoothly.”
Siemens’ E-Houses are customized, fully equipped modular power substations for a fast and reliable power supply. They accommodate a comprehensive portfolio of medium-voltage switchgear, low-voltage switchboards, power management and auxiliary systems. This allows for fast and easy installation and can be upgraded, using available space optimally. They offer a time-efficient and cost-effective alternative to conventional site-built substations for a wide range of applications.
“At the Hamad Port, we are pleased to work with Siemens and to implement the company’s cutting-edge technology that will help us significantly reduce the required civil works and installation on site,” said New Port Project Executive Director – Eng. Maisar Jamil El Qutami.
Strategically located south of Doha, the QAR27 billion (US$7.4 billion) megaproject includes a new port, a new base for the Qatar Emiri Naval Forces and the canal for Qatar’s Economic Zone 3. It will span an area of 28.5 square kilometers and will serve the country’s expanding trade needs. Developed in multiple phases, Hamad Port will comprise three container terminals with an eventual combined annual capacity in excess of six million containers.
