ABU DHABI, 11th November, 2018 (WAM) -- Ducab has secured three major contracts in Abu Dhabi for the supply of over 5,000 kms of EHV, HV, MV and LV cables and AAAC overhead conductors for ADNOC-related projects in Abu Dhabi. The announcement came on the sidelines of the company’s upcoming participation in the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference, ADIPEC 2018.
The new contracts, secured following intense global competition, include the design, manufacturing, and supply of 220kV EHV cables, 132kV High Voltage (HV), along with a range of medium voltage (MV), low voltage (LV) power and control cable systems for the Clean Fuel and Waste-Heat Recovery projects that are being delivered through SAMSUNG-CBI. Ducab will also be supplying a complete range of cables for the Bab Integrated Facility Project, as well as cables and aluminium overhead conductors from its newly opened DAC factory for ADNOC’s onshore Qusahwira Field Development Phase II Project.
Regarding the contracts, Jamal Salem Al Dhaheri, Chairman of Ducab, said, "At Ducab, we are committed to be the highest-quality global cable manufacturer, providing smart, safe, and environmentally conscious cable solutions across all business sectors for a continually developing modern world. We are delighted to be the chosen supplier for the power cable requirements for these projects, as we have invested in developing this full range of cable solutions for the oil and gas sector."
"We believe that the OGP sector will be a key driver for this transformation and will encourage the development of the sector, as well as other local sectors, such as property, aviation, industry, health, and education, both directly and indirectly by the gains from the OGP operations," he added.
To provide a comprehensive "Made in UAE" cabling solution, Ducab HV, the first dedicated high voltage and extra high voltage power cable manufacturing facility in the Middle East, now operates at the highest voltage used within the region, 1,000 times the voltage of the power socket in an ordinary home.
This has made Ducab an ideal partner for In-Country Value programmes, such as those being run by ADNOC. National ICV programmes within the manufacturing sector prioritise local supplier selection, development of local talent, and the localisation of other critical manufacturing operations. Ducab’s investments in specialised manufacturing capabilities within the UAE have already fostered a new generation of technically skilled workers, in line with the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030 and the Dubai Industrial Strategy 2030.
