Ducab HV is the first dedicated HV and EHV cable manufacturing facility in the Middle East
Ducab has secured three major contracts for ADNOC-related projects in Abu Dhabi for the supply of over 5000 km of extra-high-voltage (EHV), high-voltage (HV), medium-voltage (MV) and low-voltage (LV) cables and all aluminium alloy overhead conductors.
This was announced before the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC) 2018 which is from 12-15 November for which the company is participating.
The new contracts were secured after global competition and includes the design, manufacturing, and supply of 220kV EHV cables, 132kV HV cables, along with a range of MV, LV power and control cable systems for Clean Fuel and Waste-Heat Recovery projects 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.
Jamal Salem Al Dhaheri, chairman of Ducab, said: “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.”
Commenting on the contracts signed, Rashed Saud Al Shamsi, director of business and commercial support at ADNOC, added: “It is important for ADNOC and its major contractors to work with local solution providers like Ducab who prioritise quality, safety and sustainability.”
“Through our ‘In-Country Value’ programme, we are committed to sourcing more goods and services locally and encouraging the employment of more Emiratis in the private sector.”
“This will support growth and diversification in the UAE, creating more opportunities for both local and international businesses to further participate in ADNOC projects,” he added.
Ducab HV now operates at the highest voltage used within the region, which is 1000 times the voltage of the power socket in an ordinary home, which is in-line with the “Made in UAE” cabling solution, the company said.
