Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has launched a new 132/11 kV substation with a capacity of 150,000 kV in Dubai Marina
The project, valued at US$28.6mn, will aim to support network capacity in the Marina area.
DEWA CEO and managing director HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer said, "DEWA will seek to focus on enhancing the efficiency of its networks to meet growing demand. We are moving forward with the implementation of key projects, demonstrating our vision to become a sustainable utility and contributing to the social and economic development of Dubai.
“By providing stable supplies of electricity and water, we will try to extend support to consolidate Dubai’s position in the region, and strengthen its role as an economic and financial destination," he added.
DEWA said that it has another 17 substations under construction, in addition to upgrade works on existing sites.
“The new project will aim to strengthen the capacity of our networks to provide electricity in the Dubai Marina area. We have extended an additional 320 metres of 132kV ground cables to connect the new substation to the main distribution station at The Palm Jumeirah, and the distribution station in Jebel Ali, which will result in increased stability of supplies to our customers, at all times,” Al Tayer noted.
