UAE announced plans for a single electricity grid
(MEBG) – The United Arab Emirates has announced that all the electrcity generating plants operated by the country’s Ministry of Electricity and Water will be linked to a single grid, to cope with the growing requirements of more than 124,000 consumers.
The grid will be completed in three phases. In the first and second phases, it will link the east coast—Fujairah, Qidfa, Khor Fakkhan and Dibba—and the west coast—Ajman, Umm Al Quwain and Ras Al Khaimah—to the central zone. In the third phase the Dhaid power generation station in the central zone will be linked to the grid, via the main station in Fujairah in the eastern zone.
The grid would facilitate the distribution of power to the stations according to the needs of each area., and meet the growing demand for electricity in the Northern Emirates. The network will also link the UAE to the AGCC grid.
