In March 2013, the Kentech Engineering Team were awarded a contract to carry out the basic and detailed design studies for Electrical & Instrumentation and Fire & Gas as part of the Hydrogen Plant project being built by Air Liquide at the new Polysilicon Plant at Ras Laffan Industrial City.
The Polysilicon Plant will be owned and operated by Qatar Solar Technologies and the main EPC contract has been awarded to Punj Lloyd.
The polysilicon produced in Qatar will enable solar energy companies and organizations around the globe to produce products that reduce greenhouse gases, protect the environment and provide clean renewable energy. The completion of this plant will be a huge step forward for the facilities being built for the Qatar World Cup in 2022. It is intended that the planned stadiums will use solar power as part of the organizing committees aim to host a carbon neutral event.
The Polysilicon Plant will require pure Hydrogen gas in order to make the very highest quality of polysilicon; the essential building block of the world’s most efficient solar technologies.
The project represents the 7th contract Kentech have executed on behalf of Air Liquide on the Ras Laffan site.
