Dubai Elec­tric­ity and Wa­ter Author­ity (DEWA) has in­creased the ca­pac­ity of the wa­ter pump­ing sta­tion in Dubai’s Al Yalayis 5 to 36 mil­lion gal­lons of wa­ter daily at a cost of Dh45,516mn to meet the grow­ing need for wa­ter across Dubai.

The project in­cluded sup­ply­ing and in­stal­la­tion of the new wa­ter pumps, and then test­ing and com­mis­sion­ing them, and ad­di­tional electro­mechan­i­cal work.

“DEWA’s work is in line with its strate­gic plan, which is a vi­tal part of the UAE Vi­sion 2021 and the Dubai Plan2021. DEWA is es­tab­lish­ing a wa­ter net­work in­fra­struc­ture in ac­cor­dance with in­ter­na­tional stan­dards of ef­fi­ciency, re­li­a­bil­ity and avail­abil­ity to meet the cur­rent and fu­ture re­quire­ments of the Emi­rate. This is done by in­creas­ing the flow of wa­ter to meet a grow­ing across Dubai,” said Saeed Mo­hammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA.

“DEWA as­pires to achieve cus­tomer hap­pi­ness by adopt­ing the lat­est and most ef­fi­cient tech­niques for the pro­duc­tion, tran­spor­ta­tion and dis­tri­bu­tion of wa­ter that also meet in­ter­na­tional stan­dards. DEWA’s cur­rent daily pro­duc­tion ca­pac­ity is 470 mil­lion gal­lons of de­sali­nated wa­ter.”

In 2017, the av­er­age daily wa­ter con­sump­tion in Dubai reached around 322 mil­lion gal­lons, while av­er­age con­sump­tion dur­ing the peak sum­mer times reached 362 mil­lion gal­lons per day.
