Abu Dhabi Distribution Company aims for PAS 55
ADWEA subsidiary hires Black & Veatch to help it achieve the standard.
Abu Dhabi Distribution Company, an ADWEA subsidiary, has hired Black & Veatch to help it achieve PAS 55, a British asset management specification.
PAS 55 was developed by the UK Institute of Asset Management (IAM) to create a benchmark for best practice in asset and infrastructure management. Black & Veatch is an IAM Endorsed Assessor for PAS 55.
“ADDC is committed to supporting the government vision through world-class service. Meeting the international specification for asset management will help show it has succeeded,” said Mazen Alami, managing director of Black & Veatch’s business in the Middle East. “PAS 55 is recognised around the world as a measure of asset management quality. We have helped many organisations achieve the performance required.”
Abu Dhabi Distribution Company's core business is the planning, design, construction, and operation of the Abu Dhabi water and electricity distribution network.
Black & Veatch will assess its activities against PAS 55’s requirements. The company will work closely alongside ADDC’s teams to develop strategies and action plans to manage any changes that may be necessary.
Black & Veatch’s consultants will also help develop training programmes to aid in the adoption of industry best practices.
“Knowledge transfer is essential to the success of this project,” said Alami. “ADDC’s teams will be empowered to make world-class performance business-as-usual.”
