Dewa starts project for water transfer

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) has commenced work on a 25km water-transfer network project.

The project is part of Dewa’s commitment to maintain Dubai’s position as a global hub for trade, finance and tourism, by providing a reliable infrastructure that is capable of meeting the requirements of a rapidly-developing city. This is also part of Dewa’s strategy to increase the efficiency and reliability of the city’s water systems to meet growing demand and the increase in water flow.

“Dewa seeks to increase productivity, operational efficiency, and increased water flow to meet rapid growth in various areas of Dubai to drive sustainable development,” said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of Dewa.

“The project has extended the main water pipeline use Glass Reinforced Epoxy (GRE) with different thicknesses, in addition to extending the control system and remote control from a pumping station in Al Quoz using 1,200mm-wide pipes, and the storage complex in Mushrif, and from Shaikh Zayed Road to Palm Jumeirah, using 900mm-wide pipes,” said Al Tayer.
