DEWA is continuing to deliver on its commitment to a growing portfolio by inaugurating the new 132/11 kV substation at Al Quoz 4 to meet the increasing demand for electricity. This is also in accordance with DEWA's continued efforts to increase the efficiency and reliability of its line of 132 kV substations.
“We strive to enhance infrastructure and utilities in Dubai according to the highest international standards, which in turn will further strengthen the UAE economy and enhance its position. This is in adherence with the directives of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and it is also aligned with our vision to become a sustainable innovative world-class utility,” said HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA.
“The project aims to increase the capacity and efficiency of electricity and transmission networks at Al Quoz 4. DEWA has extended ground cables with capacity of 132 KV to connect it to the 132/11 KV Ampere and the 132/400 KV Ampere at Al Quoz. This will further enhance the efficiency and reliability of DEWA’s networks across vital growth areas and ensure continuity and stability of supplies to our customers at all times. This substation applies and uses state-of-the-art digital technologies, contributing to promoting their efficiency and reliability, and will eventually serve Dubai’s urban and ambitious plans,” asserted Al Tayer.
“DEWA is working to upgrade existing substations by increasing their capacity and introducing the latest globally-adopted technologies. This modern electricity network will help to position Dubai as one of the cities with the best infrastructure. DEWA is set to complete the construction of one hundred 132/11 KV substations in different phases over the next three years,” concluded Al Tayer.
