Emirates Water and Electricity Company (EWEC), a leading company in the integrated system of coordinating planning, purchasing and supplying of water and electricity across the UAE, announced today that it has successfully completed the transfer of the Load Despatch Centre (LDC) function from the Abu Dhabi Transmission & Despatch Company (TRANSCO).

The transfer of the LDC function to EWEC significantly expands its remit for coordinating water and electricity production operations in Abu Dhabi and beyond.

With this new function, EWEC will be responsible for the scheduling and despatch of water and electricity from independent water and power producers (IWPPs), which will continue to be carried via the transmission networks operated by TRANSCO, a subsidiary of TAQA Group.
