Nahkeel has floated a tender to build a substation near Ibn Battuta Mall in Dubai.

The scope of work includes the complete design, construction, supply and installation of a new 132/11kV facility.

The nominated contractor will also have to test, commission and hand over the substation to Dubai Electricity and Water Authority.

The deadline for tender submissions is 18 December, 2016. 

In May, Nakheel officially unveiled the 2.7ha extension at Ibn Battuta Mall in Dubai, marking the completion of the first phase of a huge expansion at the world’s largest themed retail complex.

The extension adds 60 new shops, restaurants, cafes and services to the mall – which currently welcomes 20 million visitors a year – and brings the total number of outlets to almost 400.
