• Dewa invites bids for contract to supply and install water transmission pipelines
  • Contractors have until 25 August to submit bids

The Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (Dewa) has invited contractors to submit bids for the contract to supply and install water transmission pipelines for various areas of the emirate.

Contractors have until 25 August to submit bids for the contract. The work will involve installing glass reinforced epoxy water transmission pipelines and associated works at various locations.

The project is part of Dewa’s efforts to upgrade and expand the emirate’s water transmission network.

In September 2014, Dewa announced that work has started on its project to build a 25-kilometre water transmission network across the emirate.

The AED170m ($46m) project will involve connecting 17 locations with main transmission lines to increase flow and ensure reliable supply to meet the current and future demands for water.

The project will involve installing glass-reinforced epoxy water pipelines in a three-part project. The first part will involve installing a 1,200mm water transmission pipe that runs from Al-Aweer through to Al-Quoz. The second part will involve the installation of a 600mm water main-transmission pipeline from Al-Khail Road to Sheikh Zayed road.

The final part of the project will involve installing a 900mm pipeline from Sheikh Zayed Road through to Palm Jumeirah
