Distribution and supply


There are two water and electricity distribution and supply companies in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. The Al Ain Distribution Company (AADC) provides water and electricity services to its customers in the Al Ain Municipality area and the Abu Dhabi Distribution Company (ADDC) supplies water and electricity to customers in the rest of the Emirate. These two sister companies are fully owned by the Abu Dhabi Water and Electricity Authority (ADWEA) [http://www.adwea.ae/en/].

Both companies are required under condition 9 of their licence to keep separate financial accounts for their distribution and supply activities. The distribution businesses cover the ownership, operation, maintenance and construction of networks assets. The supply businesses cover meter reading, billing, customer accounts and call centre activities.

The water distribution network in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi consists of 80 mm to 1200 mm diameter pipes and associated plants, small to medium size reservoirs and pump stations. The pipe work is predominantly ductile iron but high density polyethylene is been used.

The piped distribution network serves over 99 percent of customers and average zonal pressures meet 1.25 bar (12.5 metres) and above for over 77 percent of the population served.

The Bureau also works closely with the companies to finalise the supporting documentation for the connection and interface agreements. This includes:

  • identification of all the power and water connection points;
  • the ownership boundaries;
  • the responsibility for operation, maintenance, ownership and control at all sites; and
  • review and approval of connection and interface agreements supporting documents
