Fatality at Qatalum project

A 27-year-old Nepali national died in an accident at the Qatalum building site in Qatar early on February 1.

The worker, who was employed by a subcontractor of the Qatalum project, was buried by soil when the side of an excavation collapsed.

The incident is currently under police investigation. The Qatalum owners have established a joint committee to carry out a separate investigation.

Qatalum, a joint venture between Hydro and Qatar Petroleum, is building a large aluminium smelter in Qatar. There are currently around 17,000 people working at the site.
