“2016 has been packed with important projects and events at WJ Groundwater’s Qatar base,” reported Overseas Director, Paul Turner.
Over the last six months projects have included:
VVIP Villa at the Pearl Qatar
As the name implies, The Villa was for a ‘Very Very Important Person’ in Doha. The sub contract work involves dewatering for an excavation close to the shoreline of the Arabian Sea. A small yet complex, ‘signature’ project successfully completed by WJ Groundwater for CRC.
WJ Groundwater is happy to announce that it is currently operating a sewage over pumping system in down town Dubai close to Burj Khalifa. The project is an important part of a series of upgrades for Emaar Properties EJS. WJ Groundwater provided Dutco Balfour Beatty LLC with two brand new diesel sewage pumps. Combined they have a pumping capacity of 600 l/s.
Several senior members of WJ Groundwater’s staff complement took part in an ‘effective leadership training course’. The sessions took place at the ILM (Institute of Leadership and Management) in Dubai and proved to be a rewarding, worthwhile and fun experience.
