Dh29.7m power station launched in Fujairah

By Wam

An Dh29.7 million 33/11 kilovolt power station was inaugurated in Tawyeen in the Emirate of Fujairah as part of the Federal Electricity and Water Authority’s (FEWA) plans to meet growing demand for electricity arising from urban, demographic and economic expansion.

Mohammed Mohammed Saleh, Director-General of FEWA, said the new 75 MV plant would serve residential buildings and businesses in Tawyeen and its surrounding areas.

''The new station will ease the load off another three stations in the emirate to ensure sustained flow and efficiency of energy,'' he added.

He also said that last year the FEWA commissioned a number of substations in the Emirates of Ras al-Khaimah and Umm Al Qaiwain as part of its national plans to provide electricity to new infrastructure projects and housing complexes.
