The authority has given the finishing touches to a Feasibility Study Report drawn up by a consultant regarding the construction of Al Hassyan Power and Desalination Station aimed at meeting the ever-growing demand for power and water, thanks to the ongoing development activities in Dubai.

Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Managing Director and CEO, Dewa, said, "The authority has been providing various development construction and economic projects with its services and proper electricity and water supplies. Dewa is keen on meeting the rising demand for power with an increase in the production capacity ".

Dewa's CEO also noted that the new Hassyan Station will comprise the most modern technical and digital equipment.

"Hassyan Power and Desalination Station will be implemented in two phases. Each phase is set to generate 1,500 Mega Watt and 100 million gallons of desalinated water per day. The implementation of the first stage is going to start next year and the service will be available gradually between 2011 and 2012," Al Tayer added.
