Ducab Group to supply 633km of cabling for Egyptian windfarm

The 70-turbine windfarm will contribute 250MW of renewable energy to the country’s energy mix

Cable manufacturer and supplier Ducab Group has said that it is supplying 633km of medium voltage and earthing cables to a new Egyptian 70-turbine windfarm.

In a statement, Ducab said that the Gulf of Suez project, which is being developed for Egypt’s New and Renewable Energy Authority, will play a key role in the country’s commitment to generating 42% of all electricity from renewable energy by 2035. It will save around 600,000t of CO2 emissions every year, it added.

As one of the largest developed utility scale wind power plants in Egypt, the project will contribute 250MW of renewable energy generation to the country’s energy mix. The 70 turbines are being installed in an area of 57sqkm.

Group CEO of Ducab, Mohammed Almutawa said, “We are committed to supporting countries to achieve their sustainability ambitions and our solutions are in high demand for solar and wind power projects around the world.”

In early March 2020, Ducab said it was consolidating its metal operations into a new subsidiary – DMB (Ducab Metal Business), a dedicated business unit within the Ducab group of companies.

“Ducab already supplies solutions to landmark renewable energy infrastructure in 55 countries but we are proud that demand for our expertise, experience and quality solutions is experiencing significant growth as more and more countries, such as Egypt, decarbonise and transition to renewables,” he added.

Ducab said it has partnered with Vestas, an EPC contractor and supplier of the 70 wind turbines.

In addition to the Gulf of Suez windfarm, Ducab has provided solutions for a wide range of milestone renewable energy projects in the Middle East including the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, the Shams 1 project and the Al Barakah nuclear plant in the UAE, the statement said.

The company has also initiated renewable energy projects across 55 countries and in April this year announced its first solar park partnership in Mexico.

Later in March 2020, the firm said it recorded a 5% growth in overall profits for 2019.

Ducab is said to be proudly aligned with ‘Operation 300bn’, the UAE’s national strategy to increase the industrial sector’s contribution to GDP from US $36.23bn to $81.74bn by 2031.

In mid January 2021, Mohammed Abdul Rahman Al Mutawa was named as the first Emirati CEO of the Ducab Group.
