The Sharjah Electricity and Water Authority (Sewa) said it has provided power connections to 1,741 new projects during 2019 covering key residential, industrial, commercial, governmental and agricultural categories across the city.
This comes as part of the Sewa’s keenness to ensure prompt electricity connections to different areas in accordance with the best security and safety systems.
Chairman Dr Rashid Al Leem pointed out that the emirate's utility firm continues to develop networks and power distribution plants in all regions of Sharjah.
He emphasised that Sewa seeks, through proper planning and reliance on the best global systems, to develop the electricity network, aiming to ensure to safely supply electricity once the project was finalised, according to the Authority’s developed standards and criteria.
Highlighting the importance of engineering consultant offices, Al Leem said that the Authority has also coordinated with more than 200 engineering consultant offices to activate its strategic partnership according to the required standards.
He further stressed that the Authority constantly works in line with the directives of HH Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, aiming to develop more power stations and distribution networks in cooperation with major international companies, research centres and universities.
Sewa, he stated, focuses on the residential sector, which represents 72 per cent of the depreciated value; while other sectors, whether industrial, commercial or service, represent 28 per cent.
Sewa works hard to achieve the vision and strategy of the country to be in 2021 one of the best-developed countries in the world, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
