Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has launched a new 132/11 kV substation at the Tilal Al Ghaf project in Dubai. Majid Al Futtaim Development has developed the project that features a 300-meter ground cable system that is linked to the main transmission network.

The substation possesses a conversion capacity of 150 MV and was built with over 800,000 safe working hours. Dubai now possesses 334 132 kV transmission substations through the end of 2022, apart from 29 substations that are currently being built.
