Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has reported that it has awarded a US $10 million contract to supply, extend and commission a 600mm diameter water transmission network that will run between Al Aweer and Khawaneej in Dubai.

“The main objective of the project is to enhance production and operational capacity, support water transmission networks and increase water flow to meet the rapid demand for water all over Dubai. This will also contribute to DEWA’s efforts to achieve sustainable development. DEWA continuously supplies electricity and water at the highest levels of availability, reliability, efficiency and safety to meet current and future customers’ expectations,” said DEWA MD and CEO, HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer.

“The project includes laying 600mm diameter transmission pipelines at Al Khawaneej and Wadi al Amardi. The total cost of the project is up to AED 37 million and is intended to increase water-flow to meet the growing increase in demand for water all over Dubai, and to ensure an uninterrupted supply of water for these two areas,” he added.

The project is expected to be completed within a twelve month period.
