Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has launched two Static VAR Compensator (SVC) stations in Al Nahda and Ras Al Khor at a cost of AED 236 million, to improve performance of the power transmission system.
This is part of DEWA’s continuous efforts to support the 400kV-high voltage electricity transmission network.
DEWA’s efforts support the UAE Vision 2021 and Dubai Plan 2021, which has set a roadmap that includes ambitious initiatives and development projects. The efforts also support DEWA’s vision to become a sustainable innovative world-class utility. DEWA continues to implement several development projects to enhance and upgrade its infrastructure to meet growing demand for its services to the highest standards of efficiency and reliability.
“We work to provide excellent government quality services and adopt global best practices to make people happier and more satisfied. We harness excellence and creativity in our daily work to improve performance, efficiency, and our services to the highest international standards,” said HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA.
“The project strengthens the capacity of electricity transmission networks by enhancing transmission capacity to the maximum and reducing power transmission losses to the minimum. It balances the transmission system, maintains supply voltage to raise the efficiency and reliability of the network in these key areas. It also ensures a continuous and stable supply to customers at all times,” added Al Tayer.
“These stations are the latest control systems for maximising the capacity of power systems. They have been designed to support the reliability and efficiency of the 400kV network. In the end, this serves Dubai’s ambitious development and economic plans,” concluded Al Tayer.
