As part of its strategic plan to enhance the efficiency and reliability of its water networks to meet demand for its services, Dubai Electricity and Water Authority's (DEWA's) Al Ghafat Reservoir Complex is due to be operational by the end of November 2012.
"DEWA is continuing its relentless pursuit to execute its various developmental projects to update its infrastructure; to cope with the growth of demand for its services and to reach the highest levels of efficiency and reliability, especially water transmission networks, and increase the quantity of water flow to meet escalating demand for water all over the Emirate of Dubai. This achieves our strategy to secure significant reserves of water," said HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD&CEO of DEWA.
"We have built, tested and launched two concrete reservoirs, each with a capacity of 60 million gallons, which are connected to our existing network. The work required to achieve this included excavation, civil engineering, a sewage system, building controls, offices, a chlorine unit, a security facility, an on-site power plant to provide electricity, fencing for the reservoirs, a SCADA system, control systems for close circuit television, lighting, and a septic tank," he added.
"The project is in accordance with the pre-planned programme, and it is expected that these two reservoirs will be finished in November 2012," said Al Tayer.
The project is situated at Al Ghafat close to Dubai Bypass Road, and it serves the areas of Dubai Bypass Road, Jebel Ali-Al Hebab, Dubai Land, Dubai Silicon Oasis, Dubai Autodrome, Dubai Sports City, and other areas.
