The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) has awarded a contract to supply, extend and commission 40km of water pipelines at a total cost of $67.5mn (Dh248 million).

"This supports our strategy and plans to meet the needs of the comprehensive development of electricity and water for the Dubai Plan 2021. We work to increase production and improve operational efficiencies, and increase the flow of water in several parts of Dubai, and as a contingency against any emergencies," said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, managing director and CEO of Dewa.

The project includes the extension of glass-reinforced epoxy main water pipes of up to 40km along Al Qudra Street and the Dubai to Al Ain highway to increase water-flow capacity and provide water to development projects in these areas.

In addition, there will be a pipeline along Emirates Road to increase the water-flow capacity of Khawaneej 2 and additional pipelines in other parts of Dubai to increase water flow in emergencies. The project also includes remote control and monitoring systems, which allow the continuous control of the main water transport network effectively, through remote-controlled valves in the control centre.
