Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has signed off a new contract, valued at US $15.7 million, for a water transmission network project on Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah. The deal will see a 600/900mm diameter network extended by 3km, to aid in the efficient and reliable supply of water to the development.

“DEWA continually supplies electricity and water at the highest levels of availability, reliability, efficiency and safety, to meet customers’ expectations. The main objective of the project is to enhance production and operational capacity, support water transmission networks and increase water flow to meet a sharp demand for water for current and future projects in the Palm. This will also contribute to DEWA’s efforts to maintain sustainable development,” said DEWA CEO and MD, H.E. Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer.

The scheme is expected to reach completion in 18 months.

“The project includes laying 600/900mm diameter water transmission pipes made of Glass Reinforced Epoxy to transmit water from the trunk of the Palm, crossing the tunnel and reaching the crescent of the Palm. The total cost of the project is approximately AED 57.5 million and is intended to increase waterflow to meet the growing increase in demand for water in the Palm,” Al Tayer added.
