A&O advises ADIO on Road Lighting LED PPP project in Abu Dhabi

Allen & Overy has advised the Abu Dhabi Investment Office (ADIO) and the Department of Municipalities and Transport (DMT) in Abu Dhabi in relation to Phase 2 of its Road Lighting public-private partnership project (PPP) in Abu Dhabi, UAE, which reached commercial close in December 2022.  

The project will be delivered by Nojoom, a joint venture between Eléctricité de France (EDF) and ENGIE, and involves the finance, supply, installation, operation and maintenance of 133,473 LED energy-efficient road lights. 

The project forms part of the wider Abu Dhabi Road Lighting Programme and will reduce power consumption by 74% over a 12-year concession period. Allen & Overy also supported ADIO and DMT on earlier phases of this programme. This demonstrates a robust PPP framework established by ADIO in the Emirate and marks an important milestone in the UAE’s sustainability development agenda. 

The A&O team was led out of the UAE by Elliott Sawford (partner, pictured right) and Ciara Hickey (senior associate, pictured left), assisted by Christine Yassa (senior associate), Mosaed AlAjeel (senior associate), Louie Gough (associate) and Osama Salman (associate).
