Bahrain's Electricity and Water Minister reviews EWA's work

Bahrain’s Electricity and Water Affairs Minister, Wael bin Nasser Al-Mubarak, and the Electricity and Water Authority’s (EWA) chief executive officer, Shaikh Nawaf bin Ibrahim Al-Khalifa, inspected the work procedures of the utilities sector during a visit to the EWA call centre.

The minister commended developmental steps, including the restoration of electricity through the call centre during power outages in the nation, according to the state-run Bahrain News Agency.

The EWA chief also highlighted a service to receive distance power metre readings via WhatsApp. A team has been designated to receive power meter readings from subscribers through the application.

The call centre has received a total 41,810 power metre readings through WhatsApp over the past six months, which not only eased procedures, but also slashed costs of estimated readings.

In addition, the call centre received a total of 331, 371 calls, which reflected on its ability to deal with the queries of Bahrain’s citizens and residents.
