Investor Opportunities

ــــــ

Qatar Rail has strong commitment to contribute effectively to Qatar National Vision 2030. In this perspective, Qatar Rail did an initiative to provide full information that will assist Qatari Investors/ Suppliers to contribute to the development of the rail project in all phases. Please find below information that will assist you in channelling your enquiries appropriately and enable you to develop possible business opportunities as a result of major contracts let by Qatar Rail.​

Definitions:

Investor: Refer to Qatari Investor who is willing to open factory related to the Rail Sector.

Supplier: Refer to the vendors and services providers to the business.

Background:

The Qatar Rail programme for the development of Doha Metro Phase 1, Long Distance Passenger and Freight Rail projects is considered one of the largest infrastructure programs in the world, and Qatar Rail has chosen to administer the programme through a number of major packages in the form of design and build contracts.

The aim is to inform you as a member of the wider business community as to who has been awarded the major contracts to date and to detail what the contracts are for. This is to enable investors/Suppliers to contact the main contractors and offer to provide your services directly to them, if suitable.

To date, amongst others, three major underground packages and the Major Stations package (Msheireb & Education city) have so far been awarded. The names of the contractors are available in Procurement Portal (Awarded Contracts). There will be one more underground package awarded in due course and another three elevated-and-at-grade packages awarded by the end of 2013. This will be followed by the award of the combined Systems, Rolling Stock and Track work package in early 2014 and later that year the Long Distance Passenger and Freight Rail contracts should also be awarded.

There have also been, and will be some other smaller packages awarded from time to time and you are advised to check the Qatar Rail Procurement Portal regularly.

If you are a supplier of products and services:

Please note that Qatar Rail do not have direct contact with subcontractors, vendors or service providers employed by the main contractors. Our aim, as stated above, is to give you information to enable you to contact the contractors and prepare you for what is to come through our Procurement Portal.

If you are a Qatari investor:

Kindly note, that we have conducted a study for possible business opportunities as a result of our major awarded contracts. This may also assist you in developing new business opportunities or to take part in the supply chain for the major railways contracts. The study was produced by the consultants McKinsey & Company and the Qatar Development Bank with the title “Provision of Business Analysis Services for Qatar Railways Company”. The Study is for information purposes only. Qatar Rail accepts no liability or responsibility in respect of any use of the Study. Qatar rail is keen to support the local investor.
