RAS AL KHAIMAH - The Federal Electricity and Water Authority (Fewa) recently started operations at the second Al Rifaa Power Substation.

31 December 2011

According to a senior official, the secondary station is part of the first stage of Fewa major schemes to develop the power networks of the Northern Emirates. “The construction works, along with the overhead power cables cost around Dh87 million,” said Mohammed Khalil Al Shamsi, Director of Corporate Communication at Fewa.

“It took Fewa around 22 months to finish the work whereas the power shall be supplied from the Ras Al Khaimah and Umm Al Quwain main power stations,” he added.

Al Shamsi said the new power station consists of a set of gas-isolated keys -132/33KV, and 90MVA converters. “The substation also contains a number of double-circuit overhead power cables extending from the Ras Al Khaimah and Umm Al Quwain main power stations.”

“Al Rifaa station-2 shall then provide the Khalifa Hospital project with power, and meet the rising loads expected in the future in the northern region,” he said.

Two months back, three power stations were inaugurated in Al Nuaimiya, Sawan, and Masafi areas. “These are part of massive development projects, worth Dh1.4 billion, for Fewa power networks in the Northern Emirates,” Al Shamsi said.

Meanwhile, Ras Al Khaimah is to have an all new water desalination station within two years to meet the increasing demand for the emirate known for its massive industrial projects.

“By the end of 2013, the emirate will have a new desalination station at Al Muairidh area with a daily capacity of 15 million gallons,” he said.
