Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) has commissioned two key transmission stations with a combined capacity of 400 kilovolt at a total cost of Dh1.06 billion, Saeed Al Tayer, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Dewa, has announced.

"The first station was commissioned at Warsan area at a cost of more than Dh 405 million while the other was established at the Gardens at a value of Dh655m," he said.

"The two stations, part of Dewa's strategy, will contribute to boost Dewa's power capacity and efficiency of transmission networks from generation to consumer centres.

"At the end of the day, the two stations will provide stable power supply," he said.

Work is in progress to execute major projects of production, transmission and distribution of electricity and water.

The production capacity will reach 7287 MW and 333 MIGD by the end of the current year.
