Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has completed more than half of the extension of several key water transmission pipelines in Dubai.
This spans over 22km of pipeline with a diameter of 1,200 mm.
The project location runs from Al Quoz Industrial Fourth to Al Thanyah Fifth, alongside Al Khail Road in Dubai.
As per the approved plan, the project aims to increase water flow, and enhance the efficiency and reliability of water networks to meet the growing demand in these areas.
Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, managing director and chief executive officer of DEWA said that the project also included remote monitoring and control, which enables control of key water networks effectively round the clock.
This was through automated valves operated from the control centre to reduce interruptions and water network losses.
He said: “We adopt the latest technologies in the production, transmission, and distribution as well as control of water and electricity networks.
“We apply the highest global standards in our projects to raise operational and production efficiency. DEWA continues to implement vital projects, especially infrastructure projects to achieve the vision to enhance sustainable and comprehensive development in Dubai.
“DEWA adopts an ambitious strategy to advance its water services. This achieves the happiness and welfare of Dubai residents. We have made significant achievements in developing the water network and raising water flow to meet the current and future needs of customers. This is according to the highest availability, reliability, and efficiency standards. This also meets growing demand and increases water reserves.”
