(MENAFN - Qatar News Agency) Qatar General Electricity and Water Corporation (Kahramaa) has, between April 2012 and April 2013, carried out several projects to upgrade its water and electricity services and tackle the increasing demand of the different sectors.

One of the projects is the execution of the second phase of developing the strategic management for Kahramaa to comply with the Qatar National Vision 2030, the National Development Strategy 2011-2016, and the five-year corporate plan for the period 2014-2018

The corporation also plans to follow up on a feasibility study of using nuclear energy to generate electricity and produce water as well as a proposal to expand its production capacity of electricity and water until 2036

Kahramaa is working on the second phase of a project to provide the capacity to produce electricity and water to meet the demand of the two years of 2017 and 2018 by signing a purchase agreement for the construction of a power and water desalination plant at Qatar Economic Zone 3 (QEZ3) using thermal technology and reverse osmosis technology, and signing another purchase agreement for the construction of a desalination plant using reverse osmosis technology on behalf of Qatar Petroleum to meet the demand for industrial water for 2017 in Laffan Industrial City

In GCC, Kahramaa is taking part in a feasibility study on regional water linking and the implementation of a project to develop a long-term strategy

Additionally, the Corporation is involved in a study on the peaceful uses of nuclear energy to produce electricity and water, and is on the board of GCC Interconnection Authority (GCCIA) and its sub committees. Kahramaa continues to participate in studying the institutional and legal grounds of comprehensive Arab power linkage and the development of governance documents for joint Arab electricity market in collaboration with the World Bank and the Arab Fund for Economic and Social Development under the umbrella of the Arab League.
