Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) has signed a turnkey construction contract worth Dh1.47 billion ($400 million) for the expansion of the M-Station power and water desalination plant in the Jebel Ali area of the emirate.

The M-Station, built at a cost of Dh10 billion ($2.7 billion), is the newest and largest power production and desalination plant in the UAE, with a total capacity of 2,060 MW of electricity and 140 million gallons of water per day.
