DEWA's 136m R&D Facility to be Completed by 2020

Consultancy firm Stantec International will be carrying out the design and construction of the $136m (AED500m) R&D centre along with Reem Capital Contracting (RCC).

The R&D Centre will focus on four key operations: production of electricity using solar energy, integration of smart grids, energy efficiency, and water.

Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, the managing director and chief executive of DEWA, said: "The R&D Centre will adopt a strategic perspective to keep abreast of scientific and research developments in the field of renewable energy, and will support the objectives of the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 to diversify energy sources and enhance energy efficiency."

According to Trade Arabia, DEWA pointed out that the hitech facility includes an unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) lab, built with 3D-printing technology.

DEWA said that through key R&D initiatives it is utilising 3D printing and additive manufacturing, as innovative solutions for its internal printing operations for non-metallic spare parts for equipment thus helping the utility to reduce costs and extend the lifetime of the equipment.

The new R&D Centre will also help DEWA to utilise the 3D-printing technology to promote innovation and creativity, in co-operation with research centres and universities around the world.
