Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (DEWA) has announced that it has awarded a contract worth $45.5m to supply and fit and 450mm diameter water transmission network by 416km across several parts of Dubai.
The authority did not name the contractor to whom the project had been awaarded, but said that it would help to provide a reliable infrastructure that would increase the reliability and efficiency of its network as well as helping to keep pace with a "sharp increase" in demand within parts of the emirate.
It is the second contract of its kind that DEWA has agreed within the past week, with a $15.6m deal announced on December 30 to extend a water transmission network on Nakheel's Palm Jumeirah by 3km.
DEWA chairman HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer said: "This project will represent a new addition to water transmission networks, will support the existing networks and renovate some of it to serve consumers and enhance their satisfaction with DEWA’s services."
He added that the work would take 26 months to complete.
