This is a part of its strategy to enhance the efficiency and reliability of its water networks to meet growing demand, by increasing water flow to keep pace with the rapid growth of overall demand for water.
"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 HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of DEWA.
"The project includes laying 600 mm diameter water transmission pipelines at Al Khawaneej and Wadi al Amardi. The total cost of the project is up to Dhs37m 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," said Al Tayer.
"The project will be carried out in accordance with the pre-planned programme, and it is expected to be completed within 12 months," added Al Tayer.
