Nakheel approved the award of consultancy services contracts for eight substations at Deira Islands, its new, 15.3 square kilometre waterfront city in Dubai.
Two engineering consultancies — Green Energy and Energoprojekts – will carry out design review and infrastructure site supervision services for the 132/11kv substations that will supply power to the four-island development, the company said.
The announcement comes two days after Nakheel awarded a contract for almost AED40 million to RSP Architects, Planners and Engineers for design and supervision work on Deira Islands Mall.
Deira Islands will add 40km, including 21km of beachfront, to Dubai’s coastline and pave the way for hundreds of tourism, leisure and residential developments.
Last month, Nakheel launched the tender for the design and construction of nine beaches at Deira Islands, and in April awarded contracts worth over AED47 million to US-based AE7 for infrastructure design and architectural and engineering services at the project.
