The contracts include the supply of cables across different regions in Dubai to keep pace with the continued growth in demand for electricity from various consumer sectors.
HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA, said: “We are moving ahead with our vital development projects, particularly in infrastructure, and these projects will be applied to various projects at DEWA, contributing to the increase in capacity, efficiency, and reliability of the electricity distribution network. This will ensure a continuous and stable supply of electricity to DEWA’s customers, thus achieving Dubai’s sustainable and happy development for its future generations.”
The manufacture and supply of these cables is expected to be completed by September 2019.
