Cable manufacturer Prysmian has announced plans to expand and strengthen its business operations in the Middle East.

The firm has highlighted the region as a key area in its expansion strategy, particularly in high value-added markets where special products and services are needed, including fire-resistant cables for construction.

In February Prysmian won a US $33.4 million (AED123 million) contract from Emirates Aluminium (EMAL) for the supply and installation of high voltage cables and systems. The products will be installed at EMAL's aluminium smelter that is currently under construction in Taweelah Area, Abu Dhabi.

Under the contract Prysmian will supply 22km of 400kV cables; 20km of 220kV cables; 21 cable circuits; and connections within the facility. The first connection will be made by the end of 2008; the final connection is due to be live in January 2010.
