The Sharjah Electricity, Water and Gas Authority (SEWA) said it implemented and finalised a number of key development projects in Khorfakkan city last year. These included the setting up of 36 sub-distribution stations, in addition to a main-hub distribution station 11/33 kV (Al Haray Station No. 3).
Other work included the modernisation of a 3000kV amperes power station in Nahwa area, replacing the existing electric generators with contemporary, high-capacity equipment. More than 80% of the work has been completed on the Al Haray Station which will have a total capacity of 60MVA, able to supply 502 residential plots in the area, the utility major said.
