Reservoirs will have capacity to store up to 180 million imperial gallons a day of water
Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (Dewa) has extended the bid submission date for the contracts to develop water reservoirs at Nakhali and Lusaily.
The client has extended the deadline for both projects to 18 July to allow contractors more time to work on proposals. This is the second time the client has extended the bid deadline. The previous date was 27 June.
Dewa has invited contractors to submit bids for two contracts – one for Nakhali reservoirs 1 and 2, with a total capacity of 120 million imperial gallons a day (MIGD), and the second for the 60 MIGD Lusaily reservoir.
The project is part of Dewa’s programme to upgrade and expand the emirate’s water network and storage capacity. The Nakhali reservoirs will increase Dubai’s storage capacity to about 1 billion gallons of water.
Dewa is expected to complete the project to develop a water pipeline from Jebel Ali to Al-Hebab in May. The pipeline will deliver water to Nakhali, Al-Aweer, Al-Qudra and the Dubai Endurance City areas.
On 24 June, Dewa received proposals for the consultancy contract for a planned 30 MIGD water reservoir at Hatta.
