Borri UPSs will also protect substations, tunnel ventilation systems and telecom & SCADA. Plus other critical loads needed to insure safe and proper operations under any power conditions.
The multinational company selected Borri for both its technical solutions and manufacturing capability. To confirm that, Borri met the stringent and special design needed for this strategic transportation project.
“We have proven our technical and production capabilities meeting very difficult challenges” explains Enrico Simoni, President and CTO of Borri.
This is one of the world’s largest projects for a single metro system. The Doha Metro is a rapid transit system in Qatar’s capital city. It will become operational by the end of 2019. The Metro will have four lines with an approximate overall length of 241 km and 106 stations. The project is also planned in preparation for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
