In line with its strategic plan to develop water networks for Dubai, Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) has started a project to supply, extend, test and commission a new main water pipeline, made of reinforced fiberglass. This 900mm and 1200mm pipeline will be 17km long.
"This project is in line with the vision of the Emirate of Dubai to deliver world-class electricity and water services, and promote its leading position as a hub for finance, business, trade and tourism. Also, it is part of the projects to develop and enhance the infrastructure to improve efficiency and reliability of the water network," said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Managing Director and CEO of Dewa.
"The cost of the project will exceed Dhs96m and it will take about 24 months to complete. This new water pipeline will extend from the main water pumping station at Al Quoz, passing the Camel Race Course road to Business Bay, between Al Doha Road and Al Khail Road.
"This project is an addition to Dewa's water network infrastructure, as it will enhance its efficiency and operational capacity to carry water to economically-important areas like Business Bay," he said.
