On its official website and in the approved certificate received by Kahramaa, the Guinness Book of Records indicated that the volume of the largest water tank of its kind in the world is more than 436,000 cubic meters (exceeding 96 million Imperial Gallons, 115 million US Gallons), which qualified Kahramaa to set a new world record that reflects the efficiency of its strategy to enhance water security in Qatar. Kahramaa announced that the entry of the major strategic water tanks project into the Guinness Book of Records represents new success in the corporation's march with the support of the wise leadership. The achievement of this world record reflects the strategic importance of the project as the backbone of water security in the State of Qatar, as it meets the country's aspirations to raise and secure strategic water reserves for various regions, in line with Qatar National Vision 2030, as Kahramaa works to raise the level of efficiency of its networks to provide the best services for all sectors in the country. The major strategic water reservoirs project supports Kahramaa's goals in supporting the country's comprehensive development process, as part of its strategy to enhance Qatar's water security. It is also within the framework of Kahramaa's keenness to meet the country's water needs and provide a sustainable and high-quality service in accordance with the best international and local standards in a way that ensures harmony between economic, social and environmental development. Kahramaa had launched the strategic Water Security Mega Reservoirs Project in Dec. 2018 as the largest expansion the country has ever seen, with a total capacity of about 1,500 million gallons, which would cover storage needs until 2026. The project is in line of HH the Amir's vision to achieve water security for the State, therefore the project adds storage capacity more than what has been established in Qatar over the past years, which enhances the water security through a safe and balanced strategic reserve, ensuring the flow of water to all sectors and meeting the increasing needs in light of the population growth and the comprehensive development witnessed by the country. Kahramaa plans to expand the project in the future, bringing the number of tanks to 40 with a capacity of nearly 4,000 million gallons, in line with the Qatar's requirements for water until 2036.
