Siemens to supply innovative tram system to Qatar

German engineering giant Siemens said Monday it had won a contract worth more than 100 million euros ($123 million) to provide a tram system in Doha ahead of the 2022 football World Cup.

"The order is worth more than 100 million euros, and the trams will start running from ... 2015," the German firm said in a statement.

"The order is part of Qatar's preparations for the 2022 Soccer World Cup. By then, around 60 billion dollars should have been invested in expanding the country's infrastructure," the statement added.

The system will be installed on Qatar Foundation's campus in Doha and serve 25 stations across the site. When completed, the Avenio trams will run on 11.5 kilometres of track without the need for any overhead contact lines.

They will be equipped with the Sitras Hybrid Energy Storage system (HES) from Siemens, with energy being supplied at the tram stops. The system will become operational in autumn 2015.


Siemens will supply 19 double-articulated trams to Qatar Foundation, each with an overall length of 27.7 metres and a width of 2.55 metres. Each Avenio tram can carry up to 239 passengers, and will be specially equipped to cope with the country's climatic conditions.

In addition to an extra powerful air-conditioning system, special sun shades on the roof will protect the electrical equipment from radiant heat.

The low-floor design and optimal arrangement of the double-leaf doors featured in the Avenio platform allow passengers to get on and off quickly, thus enabling shorter stop times at stations.

By dispensing with the need for overhead contact lines, the system reduces electrification costs, improves energy efficiency and has a positive effect on the urban landscape.

Msheireb Development (Heart of Doha) Tram

A tram system is also being planned to connect the heart of Doha Development with souq wagif, proposed Doha City park and the Corniche.


Metro station access points are positioned at key street comers at ground level in close proximity to key shopping streets and offices. An interchange is planned where the two metro lines meet at Nakheel Circus a further stop is proposed adjacent to souq wagif.

Work starts on Doha Metro stations



Qatar Rail has begun work on Doha Metro's 20 stations, out of the planned 25, and preliminary drilling works for the metro tunnels have also started, a senior official said.

Qatar Rail has already signed several agreements worth over $32 billion in total for the Doha Metro Project, said Engineer Hamad Al Bishri, deputy CEO and chief program officer, Qatar Rail.

The Phase 1 of the Doha Metro will be completed in 2019, he said, speaking at the Trans4 conference in Doha.

Trans4 is Qatar's international exhibition and conference for transport and logistics industries.

He said Qatar Rail is also moving ahead at great speed with the Lusail Light Rail Transit project, slated to be officially delivered by end of 2016. Drilling works for the project’s tunnels have been finalised and over 55 per cent of the drilling works for its stations are also complete, he said. - TradeArabia News Service

Doha Metro tunnel boring machines ready for delivery

26 February 2014
By Joey Aguilar


At least two of the 15 tunnel boring machines (TBMs) which will be used for the Doha Metro project are expected to be brought to Qatar by the end of July this year.

“Once the TBMs are in Qatar, it will take about three months to assemble them underground,” Qatar Rail senior programme director Markus Demmler told Gulf Times during a visit to the Herrenknecht plant in Schwanau, Germany.

Qatar’s Minister of Transport HE Jassim Seif Ahmed al-Sulaiti, former German chancellor Gerhard Schröder, officials of Qatar Rail and partner companies and Herrenknecht executives were present at the main plant.

The two TBMS have to be disassembled first into pieces before shipping them. The machines will be reassembled in Doha for the underground boring work.

Qatar Rail expects all the 15 machines (for the Phase 1) to be shipped to Qatar within the year. Each has a diametre of 7,050mm.

Each TBM, with a cutting wheel power of 1,120 kW, can bore about 12 to 15 metres a day. “It is safe, risk is very low and it’s like a factory underground,” Demmler said.

Earth Pressure Balance (EPB) shield is being considered for the Doha Metro, a fast tunnelling technology preferred for soft, cohesive soils with high clay and silt contents and low water permeability.

The Qatar Rail official expressed optimism that the work of the TBMs would be finished on time, citing the reliability of the technology used for one of Qatar’s major and ambitious projects.

All 15 TBMs will be used to excavate a total of about 90km for the Phase 1 project which includes Red and Green Lines. The Red Line will connect the towns of Al Khor in the north and Mesaieed in the south via Lusail, West Bay, Msheireb and the New Doha International Airport.

The joint venture QDVC/GS Engineering /Al Darwish is responsible for the construction of the Red Line South.

The Green Line follows Al Rayyan Road connecting Education City with the heart of Doha. It also links to Umm Slal and the Industrial Area South.

Beside TBMs, Herrenknecht will also supply navigation systems and six tunnel conveyors while another company will deliver 16 multi-service vehicles for the Green Line which will be used for the logistic of the tunnel work.

Herrenknecht is the only company in the world that manufactures TBMs for all ground conditions and all diameters – ranging from 0.10 to 19 metres.

Some of its projects included the New York subway (five TBMs), Guangzhou Metro (51 machines), Hamburg Hafencity, and the Delhi Metro network.

The product range comprises tailor-made machines for traffic, supply and disposal tunnels as well as additional equipment and service packages.

With 5,000 workers worldwide, Herrenknecht manufactures drilling rigs for vertical and inclined shafts as well as deep drilling rigs. In 2012 the Herrenknecht Group achieved total revenues of 1.135bn
euros.

In a statement, Herrenknecht founder and chairman of the board Martin Herrenknecht thanked the minister, client representatives and contractors for choosing German technology.

“With our high-tech tunnel boring machines and absolute reliability we will contribute everything possible to ensuring Doha gets a metro tunnel system to the highest global standards,” he pointed out.

New $234 million bid awarded to test first phase of Doha Metro
April 12, 2014, by SHABINA S. KHATRI

Qatar Rail has awarded a new contract for the design, supervision and testing of the first phase of its public transportation system, which is slated to become operational in five years.

The $233.9 million agreement involves a joint venture between French group Systra and US-based Parsons Corp. In a statement issued last week, Systra said it would be responsible for signaling, driverless systems, rolling stock (vehicles on the railway) and depots (train stations).

Pierre Verzat, Systra CEO was quoted as saying: “Our teams are looking forward to this challenge, which involves overcoming technical complexities and tight deadlines. Qatar’s confidence in SYSTRA is an acknowledgement of our expertise and technical leadership.”

Meeting goalposts

More than $30 billion in contracts have already been awarded to dozens of companies to work on Qatar’s public transportation system. According to a 2012 Zawya report, the country plans to spend more on railways in the next decade than any other Gulf country, to the tune of $41.8 billion.

Phase 1 of the Doha Metro is expected to be completed by 2017, and will enter the testing phase before the first passengers board in 2019.

Areas that would be covered by the 37 stations open at that time include Hamad International Airport (which is expected to soft launch this month), Msheireb, Education City and West Bay and Lusail, where passengers can transfer to light-rail vehicles that will travel up to Al Khor.

Systra and Parsons have also been working on the light rail design. The French firm has additionally been awarded a contract in December to work with Qatar with a third mass transit project, a long-distance passenger and freight rail network scheduled for completion in 2029.

Thoughts?

Qatar Railways Company (Qatar Rail) has taken delivery of the first of 21 tunnel boring machines (TBMs) and the machine is expected to start work in the third quarter of this year at the Al Wahda site, next to the Qatar Exhibition Centre.

TBM S-865, also known as Lebretha, was manufactured by Germany’s Herrenknecht and is the first of four TBMs which will be launched for the Doha Metro as part of the Red Line North Underground project.

The four TBMs that will bore the required rail tunnels for the Red Line North Underground project are named Lebretha, Al Khor, Al Mayeda and Al Bidda.

TBM Lebretha will be assembled and launched from the Al Wahda site towards West Bay Central. At West Bay Central it will be disassembled and re-assembled at Al Wahda to travel towards Doha Golf Course. It will bore the West Tunnel of the drive while TBM Al Khor will bore the East Tunnel when it arrives.

Lebretha will dig through a distance of 7.954km, taking around 22 months to complete the job between the third quarter of this year and the second quarter of 2016. The average speed will be between 14m/day to 21m/day, depending on ground conditions.

Each of the TBMs for the Doha Metro measures 7.05m in diameter and 120m in length. To ensure successful transportation , Lebretha was dismantled into 22 sections, including the cutter head.

The mammoth machine began its journey by sea to Qatar and finally arrived over the weekend at the Doha Port. It will take a few months to re-assemble it into a complete machine.

The Red Line North Underground project is a design and build (D&B) joint venture that is being led by Italy’s Salini Impregilo, with South Korea’s S K Engineering & Construction Company and Galfar Al Misnad Engineering & Contracting (ISG JV).

The scope of work for the ISG JV on the Red Line North project comprises the design and construction of 13.4km twin-bored tunnel, including seven underground stations, between the proposed Msheireb Underground Station and Doha Golf Course via Doha West Bay. The tunnels will be built at an average depth of 20m.

A further 20 TBMs will be arriving over the coming months, to be utilised not only by the Red Line North Project but also by three more projects: Red Line South – led by QDVC and comprising G S Engineering and Construction and Al Darwish Engineering receiving five TBMs; Green Line – led by PORR and comprising Saudi Bin Laden Group and Hamad bin Khaled Contracting receiving six TBMs and Gold Line – recently awarded to a D&B JV led by Aktor SA and comprising Larsen and Toubro (L&T), Yapi Merkezi Insaat ve Sanayi Anonim Sirketi (Yapi Merkezi), Sezai Turkes Feyzi Akkaya Marine Construction (STFA) and Al Jaber Engineering receiving six TBMs.

All of the joint ventures delivering the D&B contracts for Qatar Rail include Qatari companies and have been selected upon completion of a successful competitive bidding.
