The United Arab Emirates (UAE) plans to unify the electricity grids of its seven members, in a two-phase project costing around 160 million dollars, a newspaper reported on Monday. 

 

The establishment of an Emirates Power Linkage Corporation for the UAE federation has been approved, said Gulf Today, adding that the link-up would be completed in the first quarter of 2003. 

 

A first phase would link Abu Dhabi and Dubai, the largest members of the oil-rich federation in the southern Gulf, while Dubai and the other emirates would be connected in the second phase.—AFP.
