Hydroelectric Power Station Project - Hatta
The project is about Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract to build a hydroelectric power station with capacity of 250MW, will be located at Hatta area in Dubai. Its scope includes design, hydro-geological, geological, environmental, geotechnical, and deep excavation studies. The power station will use water stored in the mountains next to Al Hattawi dam, which can store up to 1,716 million gallons, and an upper reservoir that will be built in the mountain and can store up to 880 million gallons. It is expected to have a life span of 60 to 80 years. Two reservoirs will power the station, with the horizontal distance between both spanning between 3 kilometers and 4 kilometers, with 300 meters of height difference . Solar energy will be used to power the water turbines from the lower reservoir to the upper unit, and waterfall speed from the latter will generate electricity that will be fed to Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (DEWA) grid. The efficiency of this power station could reach 90%, with response to energy demand expected within 90 seconds. It will also provide other services, including irrigation, flood control and fresh water storage. The project's cost and time-line are yet to be revealed. "As a major aspect of our help for the Comprehensive Development Plan for Hatta, propelled by His Highness Sheik Mohammed receptacle Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, we have propelled a few activities, including the hydroelectric power station, at an expense of AED 1.92 billion," said HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of DEWA. Designing investigations have been finished for Dubai's $523m (AED1.92bn) Hatta hydroelectric plant.
