Taqa appoints new head for water unit
Abu Dhabi, July 15, 2013
Taqa, the international energy company from Abu Dhabi, has appointed Ahmed Bin Abbood Al Adawi to head the company’s water divisions globally.
A UAE national with more than 13 years of experience in international energy, Al Adawi will take up the post as vice president, water development and projects, said a statement.
His previous role with Taqa was director of business development and special projects for the company’s power and water business. Before joining Taqa, Al Adawi was a business developer at Mubadala.
In his new role Al Adawi will report to Frank Perez, executive officer and head of power and water.
Taqa, one of the largest desalination companies in the world, is majority owner of eight power and water plants across the UAE supplying 98 per cent of Abu Dhabi’s power and water requirements.
Taqa recently celebrated the ground breaking of the expansion of its Fujairah 1 Independent Water and Power Plant (IWPP) in the UAE. The expansion, which is expected to be completed in the first half of 2015, will increase the plant’s seawater desalination capacity by 30 million imperial gallons per day (MIGD) to 130 MIGD using reverse osmosis technology. - TradeArabia News Service
