Ducab has revealed that it is supplying cables to two solar energy megaprojects in the Emirates.

The UAE-headquartered cabling company is providing its newly launched SolarBICC cables to Abu Dhabi’s Shams 1 project, and Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park in Dubai.

The manufacturer plans to officially unveil its SolarBICC cable line, which has been developed in a bid to meet “energy needs of the future”, during this year’s Water, Energy, Technology and Environment Exhibition (WETEX) in Dubai.

The launch is in line with Ducab’s efforts to power the UAE’s renewable energy agenda, with a particular emphasis on solar, nuclear, and wind energy.

Eng Jamal Salem Al Dhaheri, chairman of Ducab, commented: “The UAE continues to take significant steps to diversify its economy, and today that transformation is clearly seen within the nation’s power and energy sector, when it comes to the adoption of clean energy sources.

“Ducab is committed to accelerating this transformation by investing in innovation and creating tailored products that make it easier, safer, and more cost effective to deliver sustainable energy not only in the UAE, but around the world,” he added.

Ducab stated that its SolarBICC cable line has been specifically developed for the UAE’s growing solar energy sector. The manufacturer contends that its investment is particularly timely, given Dubai’s plans to build the largest single-site concentrated solar power (CSP) project in the world – at a cost of $3.9bn (AED14.2bn) – as part of its Clean Energy Strategy 2050.

Furthermore, Ducab noted that the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 – which includes a $27.2bn (AED100bn) Green Fund – aims to make the emirate a global centre of clean energy and the green economy. The UAE intends to spend $163.4bn (AED600bn) over the next 33 years to integrate renewable, nuclear, and clean fossil energy as part of the programme.

In addition to SolarBICC, Ducab will use WETEX 2017 as a platform to showcase its NuBICC nuclear-grade cables, which are already being supplied to domestic and international nuclear energy projects.

WETEX 2017 will take place from 23-25 October at Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC).
