A former executive of Abu Dhabi National Energy Company (Taqa) has been appointed as director-general of the Abu Dhabi Water & Electricity Authority (Adwea), its spokesman said on Monday.
Saif Saleh Al-Sayari, formerly head of energy solutions at Taqa, is the new director-general of Adwea, said the state-owned utility's spokesman.
He replaces Faris Obeid Al-Dhaheri who left Adwea, he said, without giving reasons for the departure.
Adwea has five subsidiaries that generate, buy, transmit and distribute water and electricity in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the UAE.
In May, the board of Adwea was revamped and Abdullah Ali Al-Ahbabi was appointed as its chairman.
