DEWA announced on Saturday that it has completed 88% of its $46m (AED170m) water pipeline project currently being implemented across Dubai.
Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, managing director and CEO of DEWA, confirmed that the authority has made significant progress on the supply, extension and commissioning of 25km of major water transmission pipelines across the city.
"We strive to increase productivity and operational efficiencies, and increase the flow of water to meet the rapid growth in water, in several parts of Dubai, and anticipate emergencies,” Al Tayer said.
The project will include 17 sites to connect the main transmission pipelines, which will increase the flow of water and continuity of water access, as well as boost pressure in the network to support existing and future projects in the area.
The project includes the extension of glass-reinforced epoxy main water pipelines, and remote control and monitoring systems, Al Tayer added.
The project is expected to be completed by December 2017.
