Feb 04, 2002 01:00 AM

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) is working on enhancing the output of Jebel Ali Power station and intends to set up a water and electricity plant at Jebel Ali with a production capacity of 700 MW and 70 mm gallons of water daily in the first phase. In the second phase, a storage complex in Murshid with a capacity for storing 60 mm gallons of water will be set up.
The total storage capacity of the complex will be 180 mm gallons. It will have three gas turbines and three boilers and is expected to be ready by May 2002. This was announced by Saeed Al Tayer, Director-General of DEWA.

Projects already under way by DEWA include the development of the second phase of Plant 'K' in Jebel Ali, a giant desalination unit said to be the largest in the world, which is being set up at a cost of Dh 2.15 bn, and slated to produce 880 MW of electricity and 440 mm gallons of desalinated water. Work on the project is in full swing and will be completed in 2003.
DEWA is now preparing a study to develop the L-Station. Siemens will be involved in power generation, distribution and transmission at the plant in Jebel Ali.
