DUBAI- Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has awarded a AED 65 million contract for a project that increases the reliability of its water networks in different parts of Dubai. The project involves the supply, installation and commissioning of surge protection devices for DEWA’s pumping station in areas such as Jebel Ali, Mushrif, and Hatta.
