Study submitted for Iran-Dubai electricity link

24 July 2008
Belgium’s Tractebel Engineering and Italy’s Centro Elettrotecnico Sperimentale Italiano have submitted their technical conclusions on a proposed interconnection between Dubai and Iran.

Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (Dewa) and Iranian state power generation and transmission company Tavanir are the clients on the scheme, with Dewa leading the project.

Now that they have received the results of the feasibility study, it is up to the two utilities to decide how to proceed.

The 180-kilometre-long, 1,500MW interconnection will use high-voltage direct current to supply Dubai with power from the Iranian national grid (MEED 24:03:08).

Dewa signed a memorandum of understanding with Tavanir for the sale of electricity in 2007.
