Ducab focuses on product diversity at MEE
DUBAI, February 15, 2017
Ducab, a leading UAE-based manufacturer of high-quality cables and cabling products, is participating in the Middle East Electricity Exhibition and Summit (MEE) 2017, which opened yesterday (February 14) in Dubai, with a focus on growth, resilience, and sustainability.
Ducab will showcase its aluminium, fire-performance, and nuclear-grade cables at the show, which runs till February 16.
Mohammed A Al Mutawa, Ducab’s chief commercial officer, said: “Ducab values its association with MEE and this year we are strengthening our support for the leading industry event as a sponsor. Our product innovation positions us as partners in the success of the UAE, particularly when it comes to emerging areas such as smart cities and sustainable grids. We look forward to engaging with the broader industry and driving conversations around innovation, and the growing need for safety standards in an increasingly competitive market.”
The cable manufacturer is now bringing the latest industry information on trends, standards and safety specification requirements to MEE by hosting technical seminars on each day of the industry trade show. Sessions will be run by subject experts from Ducab as well as from organisations such as British Approvals Service for Cables (Basec), the Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB), and Trimble (Amtech). These sessions are open to all MEE delegates and visitors and will cover topics such as solar cable challenges, British quality standard awareness, and Basec fire performance cable types.
Demonstrating its commitment to innovation and consistent growth of its product range for an industry with dynamic and evolving requirements, Ducab is showcasing its leadership in aluminium cables, delivered through its Ducab Aluminium Company (DAC) subsidiary. Situated in Abu Dhabi’s Khalifa City, DAC is set to come online at a full production capacity of 50,000 tonnes per annum (tpa), and will provide the GCC and Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region with electrical conductive (EC)-grade aluminium alloy rods and wires in the first phase.
Ducab’s FlamBICC range of fire-performance cabling products, and NuBICC, its nuclear-grade certified cables and accessories, stand alongside the aluminium product range as strong proof points on Ducab’s strength in specialised cables and products for a demanding and certification-intensive market.
Speaking about Ducab’s engagement with the UAE’s drive towards a sustainable future, Al Mutawa continued: “Working closely with UAE’s renewable energy projects, Ducab is a part of two of the largest solar power-generation projects in the region – Masdar’s Shams 1 in Abu Dhabi, and Dewa’s 13 MW solar plant in Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park in Dubai in collaboration with Dewa. We are also working with the Barakah Nuclear Power plant (BNPP) being built by Enec in Abu Dhabi, and are proud to play a role in these landmark projects that are the very definitions of innovation and sustainability in our home market, the UAE.”
