UAE unveils New railway services in Abu Dhabi

Etihad Rail, the UAE National Rail Network's originator and operator, and the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc) have come to terms on the launch of rail services from Abu Dhabi City to Al Dhannah in Al Dhafra.

Etihad Rail and Adnoc Agreement for Railway Services

The ambitious railway project is set to link the busy metropolis of Abu Dhabi with the outlying village of Al Dhannah, which is located about 250 kilometers west of the capital. The 1970s were a watershed moment for the 29,000 people who called Al Dhannah home; the region had been designated as the industrial personnel housing for Adnoc.

Enhanced Connectivity for Adnoc Employees

As part of this collaboration, Adnoc employees will benefit from the convenience of railway services, enabling seamless travel between Abu Dhabi and Al Dhannah in the near future. This strategic partnership aligns with the broader vision of Etihad Rail to provide top-tier passenger experiences through efficient and modern rail services.

Visionary leadership and commitment

Sheikh Theyab bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Chairman of the Office of Development and Martyrs Families Affairs at the Presidential Court, emphasized that this collaboration reflects the forward-looking vision of Etihad Rail, aiming to deliver world-class transportation experiences. The partnership signifies a commitment to sustainable transportation solutions and infrastructure development projects in the UAE.

Adnoc's Commitment to Sustainability

Managing Director and Group CEO of Adnoc, Dr. Sultan bin Ahmed Al Jaber, who is also Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology, emphasized Adnoc's commitment to promoting environmentally friendly transportation options.

The collaboration with Etihad Rail is a testament to Adnoc's pursuit of opportunities that strengthen partnerships, implement innovative solutions, and leverage technologies to accelerate efforts to reduce emissions. This initiative aligns with Adnoc's overarching goal of achieving net zero by 2045.

Connectivity is improved, and important institutions are working together to advance sustainable and efficient transportation solutions for the community and the nation with the installation of train services between Abu Dhabi and Al Dhannah.
