Sharjah Electricity and Water Authority (Sewa) has, under the directives of HH Dr Sheikh Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, started the delivery of electricity, water, and gas services to the new industrial zone in Kalba City from a low-pressure network in the area, which will be used until a new high-pressure station is established in the locality.

Chairman of Sewa, Rashid Al Leem, said the authority had been allocated land by Department of Town Planning and Survey to build 33 high-voltage stations in Kalba to serve its new industrial zone, which will include more than 1,500 buildings, Wam reported.

This May, Sewa completed and started operations on two power distribution stations in Kalba’s Al Saf 2 and University District areas.

Each station has a capacity of 33/11kV, and Eng Moza Al Zaabi, director of Kalba, said at the time that the Al Saf 2 station would serve 500 homes, while the University District facility had been built to supply electricity to recently developed projects in the area.
