Major General Staff Sheikh Ahmed bin Tahnoun Al Nahyan, Deputy Chief of Staff of the UAE Armed Forces, recently embarked on a journey aboard Etihad Rail's prototype passenger train, marking a significant milestone in the development of the UAE's National Railway Network. Departing from Al Faya, the main operations and maintenance facility of Etihad Rail, Sheikh Ahmed's journey culminated in Al Qudra, located in Dubai.

Accompanied by a delegation from the Ministry of Defence, Sheikh Ahmed had the opportunity to witness firsthand the progress of the UAE National Railway Network's freight train operations and the remarkable achievements of Etihad Rail since its inception. Upon their arrival at the depot, they were warmly received by Shadi Malak, CEO of Etihad Rail, and other senior officials of the company.

During the journey, Emirati cadres at Etihad Rail provided the delegation with comprehensive insights into the company's significant developments since the commencement of network operations and the launch of freight services in February 2023. Notably, Etihad Rail has facilitated the transportation of over 7.4 million tonnes of sulfur and more than 2.4 million tonnes of aggregates across the UAE, underscoring its crucial role in enhancing logistical capabilities nationwide.

Furthermore, the delegation gained a deeper understanding of Etihad Rail's pivotal contribution to the transportation and logistics sector in the UAE, aligning with the visionary directives of the country's leadership and the guidance of Sheikh Theyab bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Chairman of Etihad Rail. This contribution not only fosters economic growth but also promotes sustainable development, in harmony with Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030 and UAE Centennial Plan 2071.

The visit included an insightful tour of the operations and maintenance facility, recognized as a cornerstone of the National Railway Network. During the tour, the delegation received detailed briefings on the intricate processes involved in overseeing and monitoring the operations of the entire railway network from the state-of-the-art control centre.

Overall, Sheikh Ahmed bin Tahnoun's journey on Etihad Rail's passenger train symbolizes a significant stride towards the realization of the UAE's vision for a modern, efficient, and interconnected transportation infrastructure. As Etihad Rail continues to advance its operations and expand its network, it remains steadfast in its commitment to contributing to the nation's socio-economic progress and sustainable development goals.
