Sector codes


The Bureau is responsible for establishing and monitoring the technical principles on which the Abu Dhabi water and electricity sector operates. These principles are based on the relevant Articles of Law No (2) of 1998, as amended.

Industry codes are designed to allow operation of the water and electricity distribution and transmission systems in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. They also provide controlled connection arrangements at the entry and exit points. Licensees are required to comply with the relevant code conditions.

These codes mainly consist of:

Code general conditions describe provisions of general application and include requirements and arrangements not otherwise referred to in the codes including the role and constitution of the code review.

Panel planning code provides generally for the supply of demand data by users in order for TRANSCO to undertake the planning and development of the system.

Connection code describes the connection conditions criteria which must be complied with at connection sites and by users already connected to or seeking new connections with the system.

Operating code is split into a number of sections. These principally deal with the forecasting of short and medium term demand, production requirements (for routine operation and outage planning), safety co-ordination, maintenance, operational liaison, contingency planning, start-up and shut-down of plant and numbering and nomenclature of plant and apparatus.

Re-structuring and privatisation of the water and electricity sector requires flows of various commodities between various parties to be properly accounted for at boundary points so that financial transactions can be settled.

The Metering and Data Exchange Code (MDEC) establishes the minimum technical, design and operational criteria relating to equipment specification, quantities measured and data collected and exchanged between parties for the purposes of this financial settlement. Commodities included for measurement within this process are:

  • Electricity - between power producer and transmission system operator and from transmission system operator to distribution company
  • Water - between water producer and transmission system operator and from transmission system operator to distribution company
  • Fuel oil - between fuel oil supplier and power producer
  • Gas - between gas supplier and power producer

MDEC compliance is an obligation for all sector licensees and the responsibility of TRANSCO to maintain it and audit licensee compliance against it.

The Metering and Data Exchange Code obligates TRANSCO to establish and maintain a panel. This panel is a standing body of licensee representatives mandated to carry out the following functions:
a) keep the Code and its working under review;
b) review all suggestions for amendments to the code which the Bureau or any user may wish to submit to TRANSCO for consideration by the panel from time to time;
c) publish recommendations as to amendments to the Code that TRANSCO or the Panel feels are necessary or desirable and the reasons for the recommendations;
d) procure and publish procedures supporting the Code implementation.
e) issue guidance in relation to the Metering and Data Exchange Code and its implementation, performance and interpretation when asked to do so by any member;
f) take due account of power and water purchase agreements and ensure harmonisation of requirements; and
g) consider what changes are necessary to the Code arising out of any unforeseen circumstances referred to it by TRANSCO.

Membership of the panel consists of:

a) a Chairman and up to 3 members appointed by TRANSCO
b) a person appointed by the Bureau
c) a person appointed by the Procurer; and
d) the following members:

  • 2 persons representing those production companies/GENCOs each having generating plant with a total registered capacity in excess of 500 MW
  • 1 person representing those production companies/GENCOs each having generating plant with a total registered capacity of 500 MW or less; and
  • 2 persons representing the distribution companies.
