DEWA’s Dh256mn water pipeline project nears completion


Dubai Electricit­y and Water Authority (DEWA) has completed 87.73% of its project to extend its water transmissi­on network by 36 kilometres across Dubai, at a total cost of about AED 256 million.

The project locations include extensions along Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Road and Emirates Road; and connection­s between the Hassyan Pump Station to Dubai Investment­s Park and Dubai World Central; from Nakhali Reservoir to Alaweer roundabout alongside the Dubai-Hatta Road and Muhaisnah; and from Margham wells to Dubai Al Ain Road. The project should be complete by April 2021.

“We use the latest internatio­nal technologi­es in the generation, transmissi­on, distributi­on and control of electricit­y and water networks, and follow the best internatio­nal practices in all our projects to increase production and operationa­l efficiency. We have made significan­t achievemen­ts in developing the water network to enhance its efficiency and reliabilit­y as well as increase the water flow,” said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA.

“This meets the overall developmen­t needs, keeps pace with growing demand, and increases our water reserve. These efforts have reduced the losses in water transmissi­on.”
