Dubai: Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) released an invitation for interested companies to apply for Expression of Interests (EOIs) for the 120 million imperial gallons per day (MIGD) Hassyan Sea Water Reverse Osmosis (SWRO) project, for competent companies that work based on the Independent Water Producer (IWP) model to enter the project.
Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of Dewa inaugurated the centre, which Dewa built in collaboration with Siemens. It is the first-of-its-kind in the Arabian Gulf region and the biggest Siemens Simulator of-its-kind worldwide. It aims to enhance the capabilities of engineers and technicians at Dewa.
Al Tayer noted that the Simulator and Training Centre will contribute to consolidating Emiratisation of engineering and technical jobs at Dewa, providing a unique experience to those working in the Generation division. This is achieved using state-of-the-art technologies and best international practices that enable trainees to experience real-life conditions and provide them with the skills needed for dealing with different circumstances.
Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has broken the world record in major inspection outages by re-engineering the Gas Turbine SGT-4000F overhaul process at the Jebel Ali Power and Desalination Complex.
DEWA succeeded the completion of its major inspection outage within 11 working days compared to 30 working days previously. This allows a 63% reduction in outage duration, leading to increased availability of its gas turbines.
