DEWA completes civil works of $67mn Al Lusaily water reservoir

Dubai, United Arab Emirates:
Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has completed the construction work of the water reservoir at Al Lusaily. Built at a cost of USD 67 million, the reservoir has a storage capacity of 120 million gallons of desalinated water.

It will increase Dubai’s total water reserves to 790 million gallons. All civil construction works and 50 percent of the mechanical works at the reservoir have now been completed.

“The first reservoir is expected to be completed in December 2014, at a capacity of 60 million gallons, and the second in January 2015 at the same capacity,” said HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA.

“The completion of this project will increase the total storage capacity of DEWA to 790 million gallons compared to the current capacity of 670 million gallons. It exceeds DEWA’s objectives to secure a minimum of two-day water reserves. This supports DEWA’s strategy to enhance efficiency and reliability of its water network and increase water flow volumes, to meet the increasing demand for water in different parts of Dubai,” added Al Tayer.
