DEWA makes strong progress on AED 57.5 million water pipeline project in Palm Jumeirah

DUBAI: Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, DEWA, has made progress in implementing a major water pipeline project at a cost of AED 57.5 million, that includes planning the laying of 600/900 mm diameter water transmission pipelines over a length of 3 km in The Palm, Jumeirah. The project represents DEWA’s commitment to establish Dubai as a global hub for trade, finance and tourism by providing a reliable and uninterrupted supply of water to meet the growing requirements across different areas in the emirate.

“The key objective of the project is to raise production and operational efficiency, strengthen the water transmission networks and increase the quantity of water supplied to meet the growing demand for water across the current and future projects in The Palm, Jumeirah, and contribute to sustainable development,” said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of DEWA.

“Covering the extension of the water supply network by laying out 3m of Glass Reinforced Epoxy (GRE) pipeline of 600/900 mm diameter, 64% of the project has so far been accomplished of the total length. The pipeline passes along the trunk and reaches the crescent part of the development. It aims to increase the supply of water to meet growing demand. We expect to complete the project as per schedule by this September,” concluded Al Tayer.
