New AED96m fibreglass pipe for Dubai
Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has begun a project to supply, extend, test and commission a new main water pipeline, made of reinforced fiberglass, that will cover 17km.
The 24 month project is part of the authority’s ‘strategic plan’ to develop water networks in Dubai; an integral part of the Emirate-wide infrastructure intended to highlight the city’s allure for businesses and investors, according to His Excellency Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA.
The main works will focus on improving the “efficiency and reliability” of water networks, Al Tayer added.
“This project is an addition to DEWA’s water network infrastructure, as it will enhance its efficiency and operational capacity to carry water to economically-important areas like Business Bay,” said His Excellency.
The pipe will begin at the main water pumping station, located in Al Quoz, and extend to Business Bay, via the Camel Race Course, Al Doha Road and Al Khail Road.
