All transformers are to be delivered by April 2018
The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has issued a statement announcing that it has awarded contracts worth $35m for the design, manufacture, test and supply of 1,570 transformers. The cast resin distribution transformers have capacities of 11/0.4kV, and 1,000 and 1,500 kVA.
The transformers will be equipped with low-voltage smart meters, and are part of DEWA’s efforts to expand its electricity distribution network, and meet current and future power requirements in Dubai. The firm says it is keen on providing its services reliably, efficiently and to world-class standards.
“DEWA has made great achievements in the efficiency, reliability, sustainability, and management of its optimal-investment infrastructure, as well as the operation of its networks. It focuses on availability, reliability and efficiency in all its services, and is proactively developing and improving all its processes to achieve excellence in everything it does,” said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, managing director and CEO of DEWA.
Al Tayer also said the authority is actively implementing vital projects, and is one of the most outstanding service-institutions in the world, when compared to its counterparts in developed countries.
“These transformers will increase the capacity, efficiency and reliability of the electricity distribution network in Dubai, to ensure a continuous and stable supply of power to all stakeholders. All the transformers will be delivered by April 2018,” added Al Tayer.
