Project has been built in accordance of the highest international standards and specifications
The Abu Dhabi General Services Company, Musanada, in collaboration with Abu Dhabi Housing Authority and the Al Ain City Municipality (AAM), has announced the completion of construction for two irrigation and stormwater networks at Jebel Hafeet and Ain Al Fayda, at a total value of $13.6 million.
According to a report by WAM, the project is part of efforts to realise the vision of the UAE’s leadership towards providing high-quality infrastructure that meets the needs of individuals and communities, improve the standard of living and establishing sound infrastructure, while also ensuring the happiness and wellbeing of the community.
As such, the two irrigation and stormwater networks have been built in accordance with the highest international standards and specifications, the report added.
The project involved the supply of ground tanks and pump stations, the construction of pipelines for the irrigation network and the construction of a stormwater retention pond in the Ain Al Fayda and Jebel Hafeet areas, it said.
Across all phases of the project, Musanada said that complied with globally known eco-sustainability requirements, while it also indicated the importance of collaboration and coordination with strategic partners to realise the vision of the UAE’s leadership towards providing integrated and sustainable infrastructure.
On a related note, AAMs added that the construction of the two irrigation and storm water networks at Jebel Hafeet and Ain Al Fayda is aimed at connecting the stormwater network with the water retention area, as it is difficult to connect it with the existing network, and it is also far away from the wadis.
Thus, this required the construction of barriers to collect stormwater close to the new projects, it said. The barriers at Ain Al Fayda can accommodate up to 168,000 cubic metres as compared to 112,000 cubic metres at the Jebel Hafeet barriers, it concluded.
