Ashghal recently felicitated Galfar Al Misnad for successfully completing '3 Million Safe Man-Hours without LTI' in the Sewer Repair Rehabilitation & Replacement Framework (SRRRF) contract.
The certificate of appreciation was received by Galfar Al Misnad’s senior general manager (Infrastructure) Hemachandran from Ashghal’s Khalid Ahmad al-Obaidli and Ali Hassan al-Muhannadi.
"The leading Qatari contracting company that is currently celebrating 25 years of operations in the country, is grounded in the founding principle of Safety First. This noteworthy achievement is a further testament to our commitment to prioritising the highest levels of safety in all activities," said Galfar Al Misnad’s executive director, Satish G Pillai.
“The long journey, since the project’s inception was filled with challenges of executing in the sewage environment, deep shafts, working in traffic congested areas in the city and responding to emergency flooding situations across Qatar. Despite these trying conditions, ‘Safety First’, was our approach,” explained senior project manager N Ravindran, who executed the project.
He added that the credit of this recognition goes to the entire SRRRF team, all supporting departments, and to Galfar’s top management, from where the values and principles of “Safe and Quality Working” trickles down to the entire workforce.
Galfar Al Misnad has a long association with Ashghal, notably in the construction of the Doha South Sewerage Treatment Plant. The company was also recently awarded Package 01 and Package 03 for road development in Al Wajba. These packages were part of the nine citizens’ land plot development contracts worth QR3.6bn signed by Ashghal earlier this year.
