Qatar Electricity and Water Company (QEWC) recently announced that it signed the fifth amendment of the memorandum of understanding (MoU) of “The Partnership Project” with Qatar General Electricity and Water Corporation (Kahramaa), and Japanese Chubu Electric Power Company.

The amendment to the MoU was signed by QEWC Managing Director and General Manager Fahad bin Hamad Al Mohannadi; Kahramaa President Essa bin Hilal Al Kuwari; and Kozo Ban, President of Power Generation Company.

The new version of the MoU will go into place starting April 1 and will run through March 31, 2019 – a date that coincides with the 10-year anniversary of the MoU’s original 2007 signing. The MoU is resigned every two years.

As part of the amendment, QEWC and Chubu will continue to work together on ideas that include improving measures for safety management and maintenance quality, and promoting environmental protection. Meanwhile, Kahramaa and Chubu will continue their collaborative efforts on substation work, and launch new quality control and documentation methods and general safety management techniques. They will also focus on further developing human resources. Gulf Times
