The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, DEWA, has made significant progress on the extension of 25km of major water transmission pipelines across various parts of Dubai.
The work is a further contribution to DEWA’s strategy to enhance the efficiency and reliability of water networks to meet the increasing growth of demand and water flow all over the Emirate.
The AED170 million project includes the extension of glass-reinforced epoxy, GRE main water pipelines and remote control and monitoring systems. Approximately 23.4km has been implemented to date, 93 percent of the project.
The project includes 17 sites to connect the main transmission pipelines, increase water flow, ensure the continuity of water access and raise the pressure in the network. The project, which will support existing and future projects and further strengthen the efficiency of the network, is expected to be complete by October 2018.
Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Managing Director and CEO of DEWA said DEWA is striving to increase production and operational efficiencies, and increase the flow of water to meet the rapid growth and demand for water in Dubai.
