UL’s Abu Dhabi laboratory gets recognition from Abu Dhabi Power Corporation

UL ABu DHabi 20Abu Dhabi Power Corporation has approved UL’s Abu Dhabi electrical laboratory to help test low voltage (LV) switchgear and control gear equipment

Awarded with a five-year qualification, UL’s GmbH Abu Dhabi laboratory has been listed on ADPower’s database for Abu Dhabi Distribution Company (ADDC) and Al Ain Distribution Company (AADC) projects until March 2025.

Since its launch as an independent entity in 2019, ADPower now owns and manages all assets previously under the Abu Dhabi Water and Electricity Authority (ADWEA), which had been responsible for overseeing the water and electricity sector in the Abu Dhabi Emirate.

Accredited by ILAC MRA member DAkkS Germany for low voltage switch gear and control gear assemblies under ISO/IEC 17025, UL’s Abu Dhabi laboratory is the first dedicated electrical laboratory in the Middle East.

Hamid Syed, vice-president and general manager in the Middle East for UL, said, “This is a milestone moment for everyone at UL Middle East and it’s another step forward to increasing our presence and operations in the region.”

“To be recognised as an approved vendor is further evidence of how far UL has come since we opened our electrical laboratory in Abu Dhabi and shows the trust we have gained by being a global leading safety science company.”
