French electricity sector experts supporting the Middle East Electricity Exhibition
From February 14 to 16, 2017, Business France will be running the french pavilion at the Middle East Electricity exhibition in Dubai, the electricity sector’s benchmark exhibition in the broader Middle East region. Twenty-seven French companies will be presenting their products, technologies and innovations to buyers and business influencers from the United Arab Emirates as well as Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, all fast-growing markets.
The french pavilion should once again make a splash thanks to the diverse offering on display. The entire sector will be represented: power generation, transmission and distribution equipment and applications, products and systems for protection, security and lighting.
France offers competitive and innovative solutions to meet the needs arising from the increasing volume of large-scale projects in the Middle East. This very favorable environment (with US$283 billion set to be invested in the Middle East between now and 2018) heralds an ideal period for French companies to position themselves in one of the world’s most attractive markets for the electricity industry.
According to figures from GIMELEC, the sector’s trade union in France, electrical equipment represents 182 companies in France providing electrical and procedural automation solutions to the energy, construction, data center, industry and infrastructure markets. Total sales amount to €12 billion, 57% of which is from export sales.
