Shuweihat Water Transmission Scheme Phase 2, Abu Dhabi

The system presently consists of Shuweihat, Mirfa and Mussafah pumping stations, plus a parallel double pipeline 1600mm dia, 250kms in length, with a transfer capacity of 100 million gallons of water per day

Under the Shuweihat Water Transmission Scheme Phase 2 the capacity of the system will be increased from 100 million gallons a day (MGD) to 180 million gallons a day (MGD) to facilitate water transmission from the Shuweihat Phase 2 independent water and power project, which is currently under construction. The contract covers the extension of the two pumping stations in Shuweihat and Mirfa. 

The project was awarded to ABB in October 2009. ABB will be responsible for the complete project at various sites, including all electrical, mechanical and civil works, erection and commissioning. Furthermore the extension of the telemetry system at the Load Dispatch Centre (LDC) in Abu Dhabi is also part of the scope of works
