Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, DEWA, has collaborated with TECOM Group to launch the first 132/11 kV substation at Dubai Design District (d3).

The substation is the first of three that will support the district’s innovative business partners as well as the events and activities hosted within d3, according to WAM.

The first d3 substation will provide current and future power requirements with a total capacity of 178 megawatts (MW) to support lighting, district cooling, and general power requirements.

Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of DEWA said: "The project is a first of its kind in the region, with plans to launch two more substations in d3 in the future.

“DEWA continuously works on developing its water and electricity infrastructure, and enhancing its services’ reliability and efficiency by launching ambitious projects to actively increase our effective contribution to Dubai’s economic growth and prosperity.”

The new station is a reflection of d3’s unique design, enhancing the creative environment provided to all visitors and partners.
