Belhasa wins Fewa project

September 2011

UAE-BASED Belhasa Projects has won a contract from Dubai’s Federal Electricity and Water Authority (Fewa) to build a water transmission network of 600 mm/800 mm diameter in Umm Al Quwain, Dubai, to keep pace with the growing demand for water from residential, commercial and industrial sectors within the area.

The pipeline route will run a total of 30 km and will surround the entire city of Umm Al Quwain.

“This is an important contract win for our Watertec division which has successfully completed a range of wet infrastructure projects throughout the region,” said Greg Garner, CEO of Belhasa Projects. “This is our first contract with Fewa and we look forward to starting the work soon. Our scope ranges from design to installation and commissioning and will take 15 months to complete.”

The project value is over Dh60 million ($16.3 million). Other projects currently under tender by Belhasa Projects include sewage treatment plants, pumping stations, reverse osmosis plants and district cooling networks.
