Doha, March 20, 2006- Qatar Fuel (WOQOD) and the Italian company Romatre Project SRL for Architecture and Civil Engineering have signed contract for engineering consultancy and site supervision of WOQOD’s Tower at the West Bay.
Romatre Project will be in charge of preparing a comprehensive design package for the construction of WOQOD’s 30-storey tower, which will be completed by June 2008.
The signing ceremony took place at WOQOD’s headquarters recently.
WOQOD’s Vice-Chairman and Managing Director, Mohammed Khalifa Turki Al Subai, and Romatre’s Managing Director, Ibrahim Munjed signed the deal. A WOQOD release here yesterday said Romatre would prepare the complete tender documents for the tower that would have besides the 30 floors, three basements for car parking and a mezzanine level.
“With WOQOD’s logo visible on all sides of the building, the tower is expected to establish the company’s rightful place in Doha’s modern skyline,” it said.
The DSM-listed WOQOD exclusively deals with the marketing and sale of all petroleum products including LPG.
WOQOD has completely taken over QP’s fuel distribution arm- the now defunct Nodco.
Second Deputy Premier H.E. Abdullah bin Hamad Al Attyiah, also WOQOD Chairman, told Gulf Times last year the Company would set up new petrol stations across Qatar as the Company held the rights for establishment of all new gas filling outlets in the State.
WOQOD, he said, would also set up an LPG bottling plant in Qatar. It would also be setting up a $200mn bunkering unit at Ras Laffan to meet the requirements of ships calling on RL Port.
