The building of a 108 MW capacity substation for Dubai Lagoon has been completed ahead of the development's expected opening later this year.
In a statement, the developer Schon Properties confirmed that the AED 48 million substation had been completed by the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority and was ready to be commissioned.
Schon said the facility formed part of its commitment to ensure a prompt completion of all infrastructure for the benefit of future tenants.
"DEWA has been most supportive in helping us in our goal to provide uninterrupted electricity to homes and offices," added vice-president Danial Schon.
Dubai Lagoon is designed to be a unique residential apartment community, planned around a sapphire lagoon in the heart of New Dubai.
Schon said that Zone 1 of the project was scheduled for handover at the end of 2010, with the remaining zones to be completed and handed over during the coming two years.
