DOHA: Qatar Primary Materials Company (QPMC) has signed an EPC contract with FLSmidth and Six Construct for the design and engineering of the Gabbro Terminal Expansion Project based in Mesaieed.
The Gabbro Terminal Expansion Project will help import large volumes of gabbro. The expansion project will also help reduce truck traffic into the gabbro berths. The success of the gabbro terminal expansion will necessitate new storage use regulations and tariff structures that the importers will need to follow to ensure its smooth operations.
The project includes an integrated set of conveyors, dust suppression systems, sub-stations and stackers to streamline the imports of aggregate and its storage into Qatar.
Khalid Al Rabban, QPMC Chairman said: “We are delighted to have entered into a contract with FLSmidth with the commencement of this project which is due to be completed in 29 months and we expect to increase the discharge capacity at the gabbro berths in Mesaieed to 30m tonnes per year from its existing 20m tonnes per year.”
FLSmidth has been partnered to engineer and design, procure, install, construct, commission conveyors, stackers and capable of handling 30m tonnes of aggregate through the Gabbro Terminal to the storage new designated area.
