Continuous modernisation of DEWA's operations contributes to reducing carbon emissions
Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA)’s upgrade of three gas turbines at the E- station Phase -1 of its Jebel Ali Power Plant and Water Desalination Complex has contributed reducing carbon dioxide emissions by around 65,930 tonnes per year and NOx emissions by 77.3% for these turbines, which is equivalent to that of the latest state-of-the-art gas turbines in the market. “We support the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to make Dubai a role model for the efficiency, reliability, and availability of water and electricity. We also support the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 and the Dubai Net Zero Carbon Emissions Strategy 2050 to provide 100% of Dubai’s total power production capacity from clean energy sources by 2050. We aim to deliver a state-of-the-art infrastructure according to the highest international standards. This contributes to achieving the sustainable development goals and supports the growth of the sustainable green economy in the UAE,” said HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA.
