Six Construct completes construction of Qatar terminal
Six Construct has completed a project that has doubled the capacity of an aggregate handling terminal in Mesaieed for Qatar Primary Materials company (QPMC).
Completed in partnership with Danish firm FLSMidth, the project has doubled the capacity of the Gabbro Terminal by replacing the current operation system with a state-of-the-art conveyor system to boost annual turnover to 30 million tons of aggregate.
The subsidiary of Belgian contractor BESIX was responsible for building the auxiliary infrastructure, such as sub-stations and weigh bridges, and installing the electro-mechanical equipment.
Within the first few months of the project, Six Construct was also awarded two additional 33KV substations, which feeds the main project under a separate EPC contract.
Although we have now completed construction works of the project, we, with a partner, are also being considered to assist the client with the initial operation and maintenance of the Gabbro Terminal, said Valery Paquier, Resident Manager, Six Construct Qatar.
Not only is this a true testament of our companys good client relations, but it also highlights our ambitions as a group to be able to cover the complete infrastructure lifecycle of a project.
Solid asset management is becoming a cornerstone in the diverse offerings of BESIX, and we are very proud of the range of services we are able to offer as a company, added Paquier.
