UAE-based cables and cabling products manufacturer Ducab announced that its nuclear power-qualified cable range, NuBICC was selected by the Korean Hydro-Nuclear Power Co (KHNP) for the Shin Hanul 1 & 2 Nuclear power plant under construction.

This project win follows significant testing and qualifications, and represents the first international nuclear project for Ducab.

Seok Cho, chief executive officer of KHNP, said: “We would like to congratulate Ducab for this important milestone for the industrial sector of the UAE. Providing nuclear-grade materials is the highest form of quality mark and this is a major achievement.

"For a manufacturer to reach the level where their nuclear cables have been tested and qualified in a highly reputed laboratory in North America, shows strong visionary leadership and a pursuit for excellence. Considering the sensitive and critical needs of a nuclear power facility, we conducted a proper audit and are happy to announce that Ducab got nominated for the tender bid among global competition.”

Dr Ahmad Bin Hassan Al Shaikh, chairman, Ducab, said: “Our nuclear cable team at Ducab worked hard to win this contract against well-established international competition.

"Our national leadership has consistently encouraged us to constantly innovate and show the best of the UAE to the outside world, and being a part of a nationally-critical project in Korea with KHNP shows that Ducab has now emerged in the region to stand alongside the best-known and leading cable manufacturers in the world.”

KHNP has a strong history with the UAE in terms of collaboration on advanced nuclear power plant technology, and they have built a strong relationship with UAE’s ENEC around knowledge transfer, training, operations and more.
