Thomas Stiegler

Company: Porr Group

Designation: Executive director

Porr Group will deliver the all-important tunnelling expertise for Doha Metro’s Green Line project, where it is in a consortium with HBK and Saudi Binladin Group. The award, which was made in May 2013, was the first in the GCC to be landed by Austrian firm Porr.

The company had spent two years preparing for the project, having opened an office in Qatar and built a 50-strong team.

Stiegler, who is overseeing the group’s international expansion, said it has targeted further work in Oman, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the UAE, where it is targeting work on both the Etihad Rail project and the Abu Dhabi metro.
