The utilities operator said the new substation, which cost US$8.7mn to construct, is connected via an extended network of underground cables and will improve the reliability of the local electricity network.

Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, CEO of DEWA, said, "This project aims to enhance the efficiency and capacity of DEWA's grids to transmit electricity to IMPZ. Three-kilometre 132 kV underground cables have been laid to connect DEWA's transmission grids to the main 132/11 kV substation at the international media production zone and to the main 132/400 kV transformation substation at Jebel Ali Gardens."

"DEWA is always keen to continue its vital projects to enhance, update and optimise its infrastructure," he added.
