Alwaseeta, a subsidiary of Qatar Petroleum, has signed a joint venture deal with a Korean consortium for setting up a 60,000 sq m light-emitting diode (LED) lighting systems' manufacturing plant in the country, said a report.

The new factory will have an initial production capacity of 155,000 LED units a year, reported the Gulf Times.
The project will be implemented in two phases, with the LED manufacturing plant to be built initially and scheduled for completion by 2016.

As per the deal, Alwaseeta will own a 75 per cent stake in the JV project, while the remainder will be held by QKLC, said the report.
