Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has started six projects worth $24.5mn to extend 132kV cables to connect six 132/11kV substations.
The six projects include supply, excavation work, and laying, testing, and commissioning of new 132kV cables and connecting them to the 132/11kV substations in Jebel Ali, Burj Khalifa area, Dubai Land, Al Quoz, and Nad Al Sheba.
"Connecting these substations to the existing ones in these vital areas in Dubai will increase efficiency, reliability, and ensure stable and uninterrupted supply to all customers at all times," said HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of DEWA.
Work on these projects started at the end of September 2013.
