Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has awarded a contract for a project to supply, extend and implement a 600/900mm-diameter water transmission network by 3km in Palm Jumeirah.
The contract is part of DEWA's strategy to enhance the efficiency and reliability of its water networks to meet growing demand, by increasing water flow to keep pace with a sharp increase in demand for water in various areas of Dubai.
"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 achieve sustainable development," said HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA.
"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 Dhs57.5m and is intended to increase water flow to meet the growing increase in demand for water in the Palm," added Al Tayer.
"The project will be carried out in accordance with the pre-planned programme, and is expected to be completed within 18 months," concluded Al Tayer.
