UAE: Dewar awards contract for 60-m gallons reservoir

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) has granted a contract for the construction of a 60-million-gallon reservoir for the city with the aim of increasing its water storage capacity.

The contract signed by Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of Dewa is evaluated at around $42 million and will take 24 months to be completed.

It will include the construction of a rectangular, reinforced, concrete 60-million-gallon reservoir alongside the existing water reservoir, which currently stores 120 million gallons of desalinated water, reports say.

The reservoir will be used for the storage of desalinated water. Upon completion, it will help Dewa increase its desalinated water storage capacity to 890 million gallons from current capacity estimated at 830 million gallons.
