Taqa Executive to Head U.A.E. Energy Company’s Water Expansion

Abu Dhabi National Energy Co. (TAQA), the state-owned United Arab Emirates energy company known as Taqa and one of the largest desalination suppliers in the world, named Ahmed Bin Abbood Al Adawi to lead its water expansion.

Al Adawi will head the utility’s water divisions globally as vice president, water development and projects, the company said today in a statement. He’ll report to Taqa power and water chief Frank Perez. Taqa is majority owner of eight power and water plants across the U.A.E. When an expansion is completed in 2015, the Fujairah 1 water and power plant will be the Middle East’s largest reverse-osmosis desalination facility.

Taqa is 75 percent-owned by the Abu Dhabi government and holds stakes in businesses generating power or producing oil and natural gas in the Middle East, the North Sea, India and North America.
