DEWA starts work on 25km water-transmission network across Dubai
Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has commenced work on a 25km water-transmission network project across Dubai. At a cost of AED 170 million, the project will connect 17 locations with the main transmission lines to increase flow, ensure reliable supply, and raise the network pressure to meet current and future demands.
"In line with its strategy and plans to meet developmental requirements that align with the Dubai Strategic Plan, DEWA is upgrading the efficiency and capacity of the infrastructure to generate, transmit and distribute electricity and water to secure the needs of customers, developers and other business categories in light of the ongoing increase in demand on electricity and water. DEWA seeks to increase productivity, operational efficiency, and increased water flow to meet rapid growth in various areas of Dubai to drive sustainable development," said HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA.
Al Tayer explained that the project includes extending Glass-Reinforced-Epoxy (GRE) main water pipelines in different diameters, in addition to a remote control and monitoring system. The project consists of three parts. The first part is a 1,200mm main water-transmission line that starts from Al Aweer through Meydan Road, Nad Al Sheba, Business Bay and Al Khail Road to Al Quoz station. The second part comprises a 600mm main water-transmission pipeline from Al Khail Road along Al Khamila Street to Sheikh Zayed Road. The third part is a 900mm main water-transmission pipeline from Sheikh Zayed Road passing through Dubai Pearl and Al Sufouh Road to Palm Jumeirah.
"The project started as planned. Work on extending and launching the main water transmission network is expected to be completed by the end of 2015," concluded Al Tayer.
