UAE’s luxury property development company, DAMAC Properties has awarded the contract to build electrical substations at its luxurious, master-planned community, DAMAC Lagoons, to Dubai-based Danway Electrical & Mechanical Engineering (EME).

Under the supervision of Energoprojekt Entel, a consultant approved by DEWA, the substations will be built according to the highest quality standards and in compliance with the utility authority’s strictest regulations and specifications. They are expected to accelerate the development of DAMAC Lagoons and provide power supply to the first stage of development including Central Hub.

The scope of works includes the design, supply, construction, installation as well as testing and commissioning of substations. The first substation, to be completed in 22 months, is located in close proximity to Hessa Street and once commissioned will have a conversion capacity of 150MVA.

Meanwhile, the other 132/11kV substation will begin construction soon. In addition to reduced project completion duration, both substations have enhanced safety features and allow greater flexibility in construction.

“In continuation of DAMAC’s commitment to delivering this project on time, the first substation has been awarded to Danway EME given its long history of delivering quality power projects on time. As a developer, these are essential to fulfilling our commitments as far as our own deliverables are concerned and ensure that we provide the highest standards for utility services to our customers.”

Since launching in November 2021, DAMAC Lagoons has sparked interest in Dubai’s highly competitive real estate market. Anchored on the DAMAC brand, renowned for luxury developments in Dubai and key international markets, DAMAC Lagoons’ appeal has resonated very well with those seeking a luxurious holiday escape within a master-planned community.
