Engineering studies complete for Hatta plant, Dubai

16 July 2018

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has completed the engineering studies for the 250MW hydroelectric power station in Hatta, which will use the water stored in the Hatta Dam.

This is part of the AE$58 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.

The project is the first of its kind in the Arabian Gulf, with a total capacity of 250MW by hydroelectricity from water stored in the Hatta Dam, and a lifespan of up to 80 years.
