Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) plans to build 97 new 132/11 kV substations over the next three years, at a projected cost of AED 10 billion ($2.7 billion). The new substations will be located at Hassyan, the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, and other locations to support the expansion of other power plants in Jebel Ali and Al Aweer.
Up until the end of last year, DEWA already established a total of 222 units of 132/11 kV main substations, 16 of which were commissioned in 2016 at a total cost of AED 2 billion.
