Construction Week - - TOMORROW’S ICONS -

In the rst quar­ter of 2018, Shar­jah Oa­sis Real Es­tate an­nounced that it had handed over two power trans­mis­sion and dis­tri­bu­tion plants, val­ued at $ 68m ( AED250m), to Shar­jah Elec­tric­ity and Wa­ter Au­thor­ity. Ac­cord­ing to the de­vel­oper, the plants have a com­bined ca­pac­ity of 700MW, and are ex­pected to power the en­tire water­front com­mu­nity.

De­scrib­ing the han­dover of the plants as “one of the most im­por­tant in­fra­struc­ture mile­stones” for the Shar­jah Water­front Com­mu­nity devel­op­ment, HE Sheikh Ab­dul­lah Al-Shakrah, chair­man of Shar­jah Oa­sis Real Es­tate, said that the in­fra­struc­ture works within Shar­jah Water­front City in­cluded “the re­moval of 12 mil­lion cu­bic me­tres of sand to dig 3.5m- deep canals, with widths span­ning 100-300m, as well as the cre­ation of eight is­lands that helped to cre­ate 20km of new coast­line and beach­front prop­er­ties”.

Around ve mil­lion tonnes of rocks were moved and in­stalled to cre­ate break­wa­ters and ma­rina quays. Bridges and roads were also de­vel­oped in ad­di­tion to the power plants, Al-Shakrah added.
