DEWA completes engineering studies for Hatta Hydroelectric plant
Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has completed the engineering studies related to the 250MW hydroelectric power station in Hatta, which will use the water stored in the Hatta Dam.
This is part of the AED58 million consultancy contract that DEWA awarded to France’s EDF Group in June 2017, and covers all design, hydro-geological, geological, environmental, geotechnical, and deep excavation studies. It also includes consultancy on deep-water tunnel designs, the upper reservoir and hydroelectric power station, the tender for material supply, supervision of construction work, site installation, on-site testing and commissioning.
