Gulf Total Tractebel Power Company (GTTPC), the utility firm, which has taken over the operation of Taweelah A1 generation and desalination project in Abu Dhabi, has deployed Microsoft’s suite of business management applications.
The recently assigned private management team has had to overall both plant operations and management. To achieve the expected increase in productivity and service, GTTPC has deployed e-Enterprise suite of business applications.
Acccording to Pino Bellavia chief financial officer, GTTPC, the e-Enterprise suite has provided the management team with a user-friendly, flexible and customisable system, which it can comfortably and confidently base all of its financial decision making.
“From the earliest days of the company, the management team at Gulf Total Tractebel Power Company took the decision that we would seek the advice of expert auditors on what enterprise resource planning (ERP) system to implement; they recommended that we go with Microsoft Business Solutions,” comments Bellavia.
Microsoft’s local business partner Mideast Data Systems (MDS) installed the solution.
“We have found that the eEnterprise solution is easy to use and well supported by the MDS team here in Abu Dhabi. And what is more, we have seen real business benefits from deploying the Microsoft technology,” concluded Bellavia.
The assumption of control by GTTPC at the power generation and desalination planet is part of the ongoing privatization of Abu Dhabi’s power and water industry.
The fundamental objectives of the project are ensuring the security of water and power supply, improving economic efficiency and service levels, promoting both local and foreign private sector investment and participation; creating employment and training opportunities for UAE nationals; and maximizing revenues from asset sales.
