DEWA past 57% construction of $5.2mn project

The 3 million imperial gallons per day (MIGD) Water Microfiltration Units being built in Hatta by the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority are 57% complete.

The project will be finished by the end of this year, claims a statement from Hatta. Utilizing cutting-edge, internationally revolutionary technology and environmentally-friendly equipment with low carbon emissions, the units are fully automated and capable of providing safe, efficient, and sustainable solutions.

The project will cost $5.17 million in total (AED 19mn). According to DEWA, the units will only purify and sterilise water from the Hatta dam in an emergency.

According to the utility company, the units will be deployed in the event of problems with the water transmission and distribution networks from Dubai to Hatta.

“The projects implemented by DEWA in Hatta are in line with the Comprehensive Development Plan for Hatta, which aims to consolidate the foundations of sustainable development for that area and provide the highest level of services for the citizens and visitors of Hatta,” HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA said.
