Spanish construction group OHL said on Tuesday a consortium it leads had won a contract to build a medical centre in Qatar, which would require investment of about $2.4 billion.
OHL said it had 55 per cent of the consortium with the rest owned by Contrack International, a subsidiary of Egyptian conglomerate Orascom.
The building of the hospital in Doha was expected to take 40 months and would be made up of six buildings. The consortium will also maintain the complex for two years after it is built. (Reuters)
