DEWA awarded two key Dubai consultancy contracts

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) works to enhance the quality of life in Dubai, and achieve sustainable development while ensuring the happiness of generations to come. DEWA implements developmental projects across all operations, and develops infrastructure to improve its services at the highest standards of efficiency, reliability, and accountability.

“In July 2016, DEWA awarded a contract for international advisory services to develop the fourth phase of the Aweer Power Station ‘H,’ worth a total of AED 22.2 million.

This supports the vision of the wise government, and enhances the happiness of citizens, residents and visitors, providing a healthy environment for the public to live, work, and visit.

DEWA works to provide, and ensure the long-term sustainability and water and electricity services,” said HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA.

“The project aims to test, supply, and install three gas turbines with a total capacity of 700 megawatts (MW). The first turbine will be operational by 1 January 2020, the second on 1 March 2020, and the third on 30 April 2020,” added Al Tayer.

DEWA has also awarded an international company with an advisory services contract to develop a new plant to desalinate seawater using reverse osmosis at the Jebel Ali Power Station (JAPS).

This is a key factor to achieve the Dubai Plan 2021. DEWA adopts an integrated strategy to enhance Dubai’s position as an international role model in electricity efficiency and water grids, to meet current and future development needs in the Emirate.
