Dubai Electricity and Water Authority progresses $57m water distribution networks development


The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has completed 109km of the project to supply, extend and commission water distribution networks.

The total is 162km, with 67.3% of the project completed so far in different parts of Dubai, at a total cost of AED 210 million ($57m).

The main objective of the project is to develop water distribution networks in Al Khawaneej 2, TechnoPark, and other new areas in Dubai, to improve operational efficiencies and increase the flow of water to meet the rapid growth in water in various parts of Dubai.

The project includes 450- and 100-millimetre-diameter extensions of GRE (Glass-Reinforced Epoxy) main water pipelines to provide continuous and stable water supplies that are reliable, efficient, and always available.

Implementation of the project is going according to plan and is expected to be complete by the end of 2017.
