Dubai to witness expansion of power supply network by Siemens
Recently, an order worth approximately €90m was won by Siemens Energy from the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), a step which is being seen as a part of further expansion of Dubai's power supply network.
The order from the United Arab Emirates, which includes gas-insulated switchgear technology with a total of 14 switchgear bays for 400kV and 30 bays for 132kV, also covers the supply of a turnkey substation for the 400kV/132kV voltage levels.
Apart from this, four 500-MVA power transformers, and the requisite protection and instrumentation & control equipment, are also included in the order. It is being estimated that the power supply project will be concluded within 22 months.
It should be noted that the existing power supply network will be made stronger by the substation, which Siemens will erect in the Al Mamzar district.
Udo Niehage, CEO of the Power Transmission Division within Siemens Energy said: "Securing this order was not only attributable to our global expertise in the field of innovative, energy-efficient power solutions but also to our customer's high level of satisfaction with the execution of previous projects."
It won't be wrong to say that the order has come as another leap in the successful business carried out by Siemens Energy in the Gulf region, where power demand is ever on the rise.
