Emirates Electrical Engineering has announced that it has won a contract to provide a new substation in the Dubai Trade Centre district.

The company, which is part of the Al Rostamani Group, has said the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract is part of plants for the wider development of the Word Trade Centre district and would help it to meet the power needs of new planned projects and any future developments.

The work is expected to take just over 20 months before the 132/11kV substation is handed over to the Dubai Water & Electricity Co (DEWA).

The company said that it has installed more than 25 stations of a similar size as well as more than 4,000km of 132kv cabling since it was established in 1977,

General manager MV Prabash said: “we have succeeded in securing this prestigious project in spite of very tough competition from multinational companies and local EPC companies.

"Due to the capabilities we possess in all aspects of an EPC company and the competitiveness we have developed over the years we are confident in achieving the completion target within the given time with our qualified and experienced team’s dedicated efforts and commitment to excellence.”
