DEWA awards AED130m contract to extend major water network
Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) awarded a contract to extend its water network to meet the needs for water and building infrastructure in the future. The AED130m project is expected to be completed in 30 months of its start date.
H.E. Saeed Al Tayer, managing director and CEO of DEWA, said: “Through a variety of projects, DEWA continues to increase its level of efficiency in all its operations, to support sustainable development in the emirate. These projects include the 600-1200 millimetre per diametre extension of Glass-Reinforced Epoxy (GRE) main water pipelines, using the Non-Destructive Road Crossing (NDRC) tunnel-digging method to protect the infrastructure and services for major water transmission networks located around Dubai.”
The NDRC network will be launched and will be fully-operational once all extension work has been completed.
