Sharjah Electricity and Water Authority (SEWA) has revealed that it used Ducab HV-manufactured cables for its longest ever high-voltage power circuit.

The project, which runs between Muwaileh and Sajaa, was completed within a short period of time to meet the energy demands of Sharjah.

Using Ducab HV cables, SEWA’s latest circuit strengthens its existing network, allowing for future development of power supply to Rahmaniyah, Sharjah Airport Free Zone, and University City.

The project uses more than 160km of 132kV cables, which were supplied and installed by Ducab HV.

Abdulla Ali, installations manager at Ducab HV, said: “This was our largest project to date, and we are exceptionally proud of our work with SEWA.

“Being a local company enabled us to be agile enough to deliver to their requirements in a short time, thereby providing SEWA with the opportunity to complete this landmark project in a quick and efficient manner. Ducab HV would like to congratulate SEWA on the successful conclusion of this project.”

May Al leem, PPD director at SEWA, said: “Ducab HV was able to provide us with cabling for our new circuit in a timely and cost-effective manner. Our experience in this collaboration was positive from start to finish, demonstrating the very real benefits of using local suppliers as opposed to importing materials. With the new cabling in place, we are now able to better meet the growing energy demands of Sharjah City, with the potential to expand as needed.”

Ducab HV is the first dedicated high voltage (60kV – 150kV) and extra high voltage (220kV – 500kV) power cable manufacturing facility in the Middle East.

The production plant is a joint venture between Ducab, Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) and Abu Dhabi Water & Electricity Authority (ADWEA).
