UAE-based developer Nakheel has awarded four contracts collectively worth more than $117m for its 15.3 square kilometre Deira Islands waterfront development.
The contracts, covering islands A and B of the four-island project, are for a sewage treatment plant, a district cooling plant, a substation, and piling work for an 800-room resort.
AG Power LLC was awarded a $25m contract to build a 132/11kV substation, covering the south island (Island A). Three other substations are already under construction. Deira Islands will have eight substations in total.
Deira Islands will add 40km, including 21km of beach to Dubai’s coastline, adding a population of 250,000 and creating 80,000 jobs.
