Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) has invited consultancies to submit feasibility study bids for its wind power generation project in Hatta, which will create jobs in the Dubai enclave.

The last date for the companies to submit their bids is 23 July, 2019, Dewa said in a statement. 

Commenting on the project, managing director and chief executive officer of Dewa, HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, said: “The Hatta power generation project aligns with Dewa’s efforts to contribute effectively in achieving the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050, launched by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai."

Last month, Dewa revealed plans to build five 400 kV substations with a budget of $599m (AED2.2bn), which will add to its 22 substations in Dubai. 

The utility provider also invited expressions of interest in June for the independent water producer Hassyan Sea Water Reverse Osmosis project, which will have the capacity of 120 million imperial gallons per day.
