The Sharjah Electricity, Water and Gas Authority (Sewa) has declared that the northern emirate's Al Haray's commercial and industrial districts will soon have access to electricity.

Following the strictest safety and security guidelines, the first phase aims to establish 12 sub-distribution stations with a voltage of 11 kV and a length of 12 km. The total cost of these stations is US$5.1mn. 

Sewa emphasised that it was still committed to supply the Al Haray development with clean, safe water.

It said that the installation of the main water lines and pipelines has already started.

These pipes range in diameter from 100 mm to 300 mm and are composed of Glass Reinforced Epoxy (GRE) material. To serve all users in the industrial and commercial sections of Al Haray, the pipes will have a total length of 30,000 linear metres.

Saud Abdulaziz, the director of the Khorfakkan Department at Sewa, said it was giving power connection in both industrial and commercial areas of Al Haray.

The implementation of the commercial area link will cost AED 7 million, while the industrial area connection would cost more than AED 12 million.

It also stated that these activities will not stop until a permanent 33 kV main distribution station is built in order to completely power the region.
