Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has awarded a contract to supply, extend and commission 40km of water pipelines, at a total cost of AED 248 million ($67.5 million).

The project includes the extension of 600-1,200 millimetre main water pipes of up to 40 km along the Dubai to Al Ain highway, to increase water-flow capacity and provide water, where needed, to development projects in these areas.

It will also entail remote control and monitoring systems, which allow the continuous control of the main water transport network effectively, through remote-controlled valves in the control centre.

The network has been designed to contribute to the isolation of faults in the shortest possible time, reducing water loss.

“This supports our ambitious strategy and plans to meet the needs of the comprehensive development of electricity and water for the Dubai Plan 2021, and meets the highest standards of availability, reliability and efficiency, to meet customer demand,” said HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, CEO of DEWA.

“We are working to increase production and improve operational efficiencies, and increase the flow of water in several parts of Dubai, and as a contingency against any emergencies. This contributes to the advancement of sustainable development.”

The project is expected to take 30 months to complete.
