“The main objective of the project is to enhance production and operational capacity, support water transmission networks and increase water flow to meet the rapid demand for water all over Dubai. This will also contribute to DEWA’s efforts to achieve sustainable development,” said DEWA managing director and chief executive officer Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer.

“The project includes laying 600mm diameter transmission pipelines at Al Khawaneej and Wadi al Amardi. The project is intended to increase water-flow to meet the growing increase in demand for water all over Dubai, and to ensure an uninterrupted supply of water for these two areas,” he added.

The project is expected to be completed within a period of 12 months.
