Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) has issued an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) tender for a cable car system and luxury hotels at the Dubai Summit Complex (DSC) in Hatta.
These attractions are part of the Dubai Mountain Peak project, which will contribute to overall development in the Hatta region, especially the 5.4-km cable car that will transport tourists to Um Al Nesoor, the emirate’s highest natural summit standing tall at 1,300 m above sea level.
According to Dewa, specialised international consultants have been appointed to ensure the project is implemented according to the highest international standards of quality, safety, and security.
The cable car route passes over the Hatta Dam lake and the upper dam lake, which are parts of the Hatta pumped-storage hydroelectricity plant currently under construction, as well as over the mountains. The route ends at the summit of the Um Al Nesoor mountain. The departure station will be built on an upper platform above the Hatta Dam. The intermediate stop will have a viewing platform and facilities to serve tourists as well as a luxury hotel, while the top station will include a panoramic viewing platform and facilities for tourists as well as suites from the main hotel.
The deadline for submitting the EPC bids has been set at February 15.
