Ducab Brings Oil & Gas Cable Range to the Fore at ADIPEC 2014
Ducab, the Middle East’s leading manufacturer of high quality cables and cabling products, is using its participation at Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition & Conference (ADIPEC) to showcase its latest product line, PetroBICC. Exclusively designed for the Oil, Gas & Petrochemical sector, the PetroBICC range of cables offers low and medium voltage cables for power, control and instrumentation applications both onshore and offshore.
The PetroBICC range has already seen significant acceptance from the OGP sector in the region, with a US$17m project already secured in Oman. Ducab is also fulfilling orders for major projects in Abu Dhabi, Turkmenistan, Bahrain and Kuwait. Ducab’s largest project in the UAE is the ZADCO UZ750 project from Petrofac Emirates, with a value of AED 220m for mixed lead and non-lead sheathed PetroBICC cables.
Eng. Jamal Salem Al Dhaheri, Chairman of Ducab, said: “Ducab has continued its strong rate of growth in more specialised products, and with this highly-relevant product for our region, we expect this rate of growth to continue. We have led the industry in terms of certification and standards, and we look forward to engaging with the oil and gas sector to demonstrate the quality and longevity offered by the PetroBICC range.”
Ducab’s PetroBICC cables are designed to meet international quality standards, including hydrocarbon resistance and low toxicity. To meet requirements for use in the hazardous conditions of the oil and gas sector, Ducab offers both polyamide and lead-sheathed cable construction within the PetroBICC range, designed for on-shore applications and, new for 2014, a full range of rubber cables for offshore applications.
Andrew Shaw, Managing Director, Ducab, said: “At Ducab, our focus is on identifying market trends and preparing ourselves for changing customer demand. Our recent acquisition of AEI Cables in the UK has propelled us into the forefront of specialist cables for the oil and gas sector, and our combined expertise is already proving to be attractive to the sector here in the region.”
As part of its innovation and sector-focused product approach, Ducab is focusing its efforts on FlamBICC, the flame-retardant cable series; PetroBICC for the oil and gas sector; RuBICC range of rubber cables for flexible applications; and NuBICC 60++, which has been specially developed and certified for over 60 years for the nuclear power generation sector.
