DEWA has reported major progress on completing a $56million, 30km pipeline project, according to MD and CEO HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer.
The project comprises four 1,200mm-diameter pipelines to transmit desalinated water from Station M to the main storage tanks at Jebel Ali.
“It is expected that two out of the four lines will be completed at a total length of 15km by next summer to coincide with setting Station M into service. As for the other two remaining lines, which reach a total length of 15km, they are expected to be finished in April 2012,” said Al Tayer.
Station M is expected to produce 140million gallons of desalinated water a day. “We intend to expand the capacity of the water transmission network accordingly to meet the rising demand for water in Dubai,” said Al Tayer.
