Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has said it has signed off on a US $5.3 million deal for a new 132kV electricity cable network for Dubai’s Gardens and Dubai Investment Park area. The contract, that is expected to be completed in February 2014, is aimed at boosting network efficiency and capacity across Dubai.
“Led by our vision to become a sustainable world-class utility, DEWA contributes effectively to the social, economic and environmental development of the emirate, by providing uninterrupted and stable electricity and water services to achieve the vision of Dubai. The new cable network further strengthens our infrastructure and enables us to provide swift and efficient power supply to our customers. The length of the new cables network is up to 26 kilometres, and covers a wide area in Jebel Ali, with the scope of work covering the supply and drilling of extensions, testing, commissioning, and managing links with existing networks,” said HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, DEWA CEO and MD.
“Reliability in all areas of our network is our primary concern, as it contributes to further establishing Dubai as a global hub for trade, finance and tourism, and securing the supply of reliable energy for various uses,” he added.
