Mott MacDonald appointed owner’s engineer for Ras Abu Fontas B2 power and water plant

Mott MacDonald has been appointed as owner’s engineer by Qatar Electricity and Water Company (QEWC) for the Ras Abu Fontas B2 (RAF B2) power and water plant, an extension to the existing B plant located near to Doha. The US$520 million plant is being constructed to meet Qatar's increasing power and water demand which is expected to increase by 10% per year for power and 9% per year for water for the next five years.

RAF B2, which is being developed by a consortium including General Electric and FISIA Italimpianti under an engineer, procure and construct (EPC) contract, will produce 597 MW of electric power from three GE Frame 9FA gas turbines. Two heat recovery boilers will supply steam to two multistage flash distillers enabling them to produce 30 million gallons of desalinated water per day.

Mott MacDonald’s role involves providing design review and construction monitoring services during construction of the plant and warrantee management services during the three year defects liability period ending in July 2010. Mott MacDonald also assisted with the tender evaluation and award of the EPC contact.

The plant will be completed in time to meet peak demand in the summer of 2007.


Note to editors

Mott MacDonald has been working with QEWC on the Ras Abu Fontas site since 1973 when the first plant Ras Abu Fontas A was built. This relationship has been sustained by the company’s involvement in Phases 1, 2, 3 and 4 of the A station and Phase B and B2 of the B station, totalling nearly 2000 MW of installed generation.
