Power

TAQA has eight operational power generation and desalination facilities across the UAE.

Power Generation Facilities

The strong UAE power and water generation base and support from the Abu Dhabi government has underpinned the Group’s growth into a diversified international energy business.

TAQA has a 54 per cent interest in each of its eight UAE power generation and water desalination plants, with Abu Dhabi Water and Electricity Authority (ADWEA) having a 6 per cent interest in each such plant. The remaining 40 per cent interest in each of these plants is held by various international partners. Their total power generation capacity is 12,487 MW, and total desalination capacity is 887 million imperial gallons per day (MIGD).

The plants sell all their electricity and water production under power and water purchase agreements (PWPAs) with Abu Dhabi Water and Electricity Company (ADWEC), under which their compensation is based primarily on the availability of generation and desalination capacity rather than the amount of electricity and desalinated water produced.

Each of these plants is managed, operated and maintained by international partners under long-term operations and maintenance agreements between the relevant international partner and the generation subsidiary concerned.
