Sharjah's Sewa completes two 33/11kV power stations in Kalba
Al Saf station to serve 500 homes in Sharjah, whilst University District facility to support emirate's development projects
Sharjah Electricity and Water Authority (Sewa) has completed and started operations on two power distribution stations in Kalba’s Al Saf 2 and University District areas, which Sewa chairman, Dr Rashid Al Leem, said support the aims of HH Dr Sheikh Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, to improve local utility services.
Each station has a capacity of 33/11kV, and Eng Moza Al Zaabi, director of Kalba, said the Al Saf 2 station caters to 500 homes.
Meanwhile, the University District facility has been built to supply electricity to recently developed projects in the area.
In addition to the completion of these power distribution stations, Sewa has also completed maintenance and network development projects.
According to UAE state news agency Wam, the projects are expected to serve both the population of Sharjah as well as the emirate’s upcoming projects.
Sewa is working on several utility projects at present, one of which is a 1,026.3MW gas turbine combined cycle power plant in Sharjah’s Al Layyah area.
Egypt bourse-listed Elsewedy Electric and Japan’s Mitsubishi Hitachi Power systems are working on the project under an engineering, procurement, and construction contract worth $550m, awarded to the consortium by Sewa.
