“Next substation, the fourth one will be opened soon at west of Doha and the fifth substation with car parking facilities is expected to be operational in mid-2019,” said Al Kuwari.

Kahramaa is proud to supply power to Doha Metro as per its requirement as Kahramaa is a main partner in the developmental projects taking place in the country, said Eng. Essa bin Hilal Al Kuwari.

“Doha Metro stations were given priority in awarding projects, it was one of the challenges for Kahramaa which was implemented at highest standards successfully,” said Al Kuwari.

The sub power station of Al Waab, is part of the 12th phase of the electric transmission network expansion project in Qatar.
