The sub-station and ground cables, linking the station network, will cost nearly US$23mn and US$9mn respectively, DEWA stated.

Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, managing director of DEWA, said, “To become a sustainable world-class utility, we are strengthening our infrastructure and service facilities as per the highest international standards. This is to meet the basic needs of the people and business community to further establish Dubai as a global economic hub.”

The ground cables have been extended by 6.9km to link the main sub-station, with the 132/11 kV sub-station in Al Bustan and the 132/11 kV sub-station in Al Qusais.
