Kahramaa enters Guinness World Records for largest drinking water storage tank

By QLNews

Qatar has achieved yet another prestigious international recognition.

Adding to the country’s portfolio of world records, the Qatar General Electricity and Water Corporation (KAHRAMAA) has entered the Guinness World Records for the ‘Largest Drinking Water Storage Tank’ in the world.

On its official website as well as in the approved certificate that KAHRAMAA has received, the Guinness World Records indicated that the volume of the largest water tank of its kind in the world is more than 436,000 cubic meters (exceeding 96 million Imperial Gallons, 115 million US Gallons), which qualified KAHRAMAA to set a new world record that reflects the efficiency of its strategy to enhance water security in Qatar.

KAHRAMAA announced that the entry of the major strategic water tanks project into the Guinness World Records represents new success in the corporation's march with the support of the wise leadership.

This world record mirrors the strategic importance of the project as the backbone of water security in Qatar as the project meets the country’s ambition to raise and secure strategic water reserves for different regions.

The major strategic water reservoirs project is in line with Qatar National Vision 2030, where KAHRAMAA continues to drive efforts to increase the level of efficiency of its networks to provide the best services for all sectors in Qatar.

KAHRAMAA had launched the strategic Water Security Mega Reservoirs Project in Dec. 2018 as the largest expansion the country has ever seen, with a total capacity of about 1,500 million gallons, which would cover storage needs until 2026.

The project is aligned with HH the Amir's vision to achieve water security for Qatar. The project has added storage capacity more than what has been established in the country over the past years.

It enhances water security through a safe and balanced strategic reserve while ensuring the flow of water to all sectors and meeting the increasing needs of the growing population as well as the country’s extensive development.

KAHRAMAA plans to expand the project in the future, bringing the number of tanks to 40 with a capacity of nearly 4,000 million gallons, in line with Qatar's requirements for water until 2036.
