Cabling giant showcases latest products at Dubai exhibition
Dubai – UAE, 15th April 2013: Ducab, one of the leading manufacturers of high-quality power cables and wires in the Middle East, will be showcasing its latest technologies in copper cable manufacturing during its participation in the 15th Water, Energy, Technology and Environment Exhibition (WETEX) 2013. The conference is being held at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre, from 15-17 April 2013, and under the slogan “Sustainable Development for All”.
This current edition of WETEX – which is being organised by Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), under the umbrella of Dubai Supreme Council of Energy (DSCE) – comes as part of the efforts made by the UAE and Dubai in the fields of energy. The exhibition is an ideal platform to showcase solutions, technologies and strategies that aim to shed light on the latest energy policies of different types, from conventional to renewable energy, oil and gas, coal and nuclear energy. It will also present sustainable development solutions and technologies related to water, electricity, environment, green and sustainable buildings, among others.
Commenting on Ducab's participation in WETEX 2013, H.E. Dr. Ahmad AlShaikh, Chairman, Ducab, underlined the importance of the current edition of WETEX, coming as it does right after the official launch of ‘Shams 1'; the world's largest concentrated solar power plant in Abu Dhabi, with a capacity of 100 MW of clean electric power. This confirms the UAE's commitment to maintain its distinguished position as a major supplier of energy by expanding the scope of its leadership to the renewable energy sector.
AlShaikh expressed Ducab's pride in being one of the main sponsors of WETEX 2013, and particularly its platinum sponsor status. He added that this confirms Ducab's commitment to its deep and long-standing partnership with DEWA. Al-Sheikh stated that “through its participation in WETEX 2013, Ducab aims at highlighting its new range of electric cables of all kinds, especially the flexible cables, designed for internal wiring applications which bear high pressure, along with a range of fire-resistant FLAMBICC cables, ideal for residential and industrial use where safety is a primary concern, in addition to a range of control and instrumentation cables which are used in control circuits, as Ducab's cables are widely used in the oil and gas and petrochemicals sectors.”
Andrew Shaw, Managing Director of Ducab, said, “WETEX 2013 is a global platform for the exchange of views and experiences, and it is one of the most important trade exhibitions hosted annually by the UAE, attracting participants and visitors from all over the world.”
He said that the activities of this edition enhance the UAE's chances of hosting the Expo 2020. Ducab is proud of being part of this important event and is keen to exchange ideas and experiences in the field of energy, and learn about the latest technologies available in the global market related to water, energy and environment. Other vital areas that constitute the most important systems in sustainable development are also of great interest to Ducab.
Shaw added: “By participating in this event, Ducab aims at educating others about its experiences in the field of sustainability and environmental conservation and protection. The company is committed to sustainability programs at all work stages in its factories and offices. The company's strategy puts the issue of sustainable development at the top of its priorities.”
