Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA)’s construction of 3 million imperial gallons per day (MIGD) Water Microfiltration Units in Hatta is 57% complete and the project will be completed by the end of this year.

These units refine and sterilise the water of Hatta dam to use it only in emergencies. The units will be used in case of faults in water transmission and distribution networks from Dubai to Hatta.

The total cost of the water microfiltration units is $5.17 million. The fully automated units can provide sustainable and safe solutions with high efficiency, using the latest innovative global technologies and sustainable equipment with low carbon emissions.

DEWA’s Managing Director and CEO Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer said: “We work within the framework of the vision and directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to provide state-of-the-art infrastructure, keeping pace with the requirements of sustainable development to achieve the UAE Water Security Strategy 2036 which aims to ensure sustainable access to water during both normal and emergency conditions.”

He further said: “The Dubai Integrated Water Resource Management Strategy 2030 focuses on enhancing water resources and using cutting-edge technologies and innovative solutions. DEWA works to provide state-of-the-art integrated infrastructure for electricity and water to provide our services according to the highest standards of availability, reliability, efficiency and quality,” he said.

“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. The plan also aims to establish development projects, while considering the environment and natural resources in this vital area,” Al Tayer added.

Demand for Water and Power UP

Dubai’s fast paced development has resulted in a rapid increase in the demand for electricity and water and DEWA has grown along with Dubai’s expanding economy, population, and world-class competitive infrastructure.

The company emphasise the Emirate’s position as a global city. DEWA is therefore both integral to, and benefits from, Dubai’s past and current economic growth. And we are playing a key role in Dubai’s green energy transition process.

DEWA has a world-class governance system and continuous record of good governance across all its operations. With the highest standards of efficiency, quality, and availability, DEWA is ready to meet the increasing demand for electricity and water in the Emirate, as the population is expected to grow from around 3.5 million people today to 5.8 million people by 2040.
