Dubai Awards Water Transmission Expansion Contract for Emirates

January 02, 2013

Dubai has awarded a contract for a project to extend the metropolitan area’s water transmission network by 416 kilometers (259 miles).

The 167 million-dirham ($45.5 million) project by Dubai Electricity and Water Authority is part of plans by authorities in the regional trade, tourism and financial hub to keep pace with area water demands, DEWA said today.

The project, estimated to take 26 months to complete, plans to install new water-transmission pipelines, reduce water losses by renovating household connections, increase supply capacity and boost flows “to meet the sharp demand for water in various areas of Dubai,” DEWA Chief Executive Officer Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer said in a statement.
