Ducab To Unveil New Range Of Rubber Cabling At ADIPEC
(11 November 2013)
Largest Middle East Oil And Gas Industry Exhibition To Open Up New Markets For Ducab


Ducab, one of the leading manufacturers of high-quality power cables and wires in the Middle East, has unveiled its new state-of-the-art range of rubber cables, which are produced in the company’s new facility in Musaffah, Abu Dhabi. This has been announced during Ducab’s participation in the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC), which takes place between 10th and 13th November 2013 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC).

Andrew Shaw, the Managing Director of the company, stated, “Ducab looks forward to becoming the first manufacturer of rubber cables in the Middle East region, as the company seeks to meet demand for special cabling from the region’s push for industrialisation.”

“ADIPEC is the largest exhibition for the Middle East oil and gas industry, and the third largest oil and gas event in the world. Given this fact, Ducab is delighted to be involved in 2013 iteration of the exhibition, having featured prominently in the 2012 edition,” added Shaw.

He continued: “With this new range, Ducab becomes the first supplier in the Middle East region to produce rubber cabling for the offshore market. It is intended that Ducab will expand into new global markets for the export of its high-quality cabling products of various types.”

Colin McKay, General Manager for Sales & Marketing at Ducab, had the following to say, “Ducab’s range of rubber cables are designed to provide exceptional flexibility in terms of usage. Cabling insulated with rubber has the ability to withstand extreme heat, a variety of corrosive chemicals, exposure to oil, extreme acid and alkaline environments, very high and low temperatures – with rubber cabling having a maximum conductor operating temperature of 200 degrees Celsius – and other extreme and heavy-duty demands.”

“This makes Ducab’s new range of cables ideal for usage in a variety of industrial sectors such as railways, shipbuilding, oil and gas, offshore and mining projects, submersible water pump systems, wind turbines and solar plants,” explained McKay.

He added, “Ducab has a history of supplying major projects in the OGP sector with a variety of high-tech products, with previous partnerships including Hyundai Engineering and Construction through the KOC Pipeline Project, Samsung Engineering through Carbon Black Project in Abu Dhabi, and other OGP projects and international companies.”

According to the Marketing Manager of Ducab, Ashish Chaturvedy: “Ducab is fundamentally related to cable manufacturing history right back to the 1880’s. It is worthwhile to mention that the rubber cabling range of products were first used for signalling as far back as the 1860’s, so there is in fact a rich industrial history related to rubber cabling.”

“Owing to the fact that the cabling we have produced is a unique product, we anticipate that there is huge potential for it within the regional and global markets. There are no obvious direct competitors due to Ducab’s ability to produce some types of cables that are both unique and of supremely high quality, which are in accordance with international standards,” said Chaturvedy.

It is noteworthy that the 16th edition of ADIPEC kicked off on Sunday, 10th of November at ADNEC, under the theme ‘Energy for all in a Changing World’, with the participation of nearly 50,000 oil and gas industry professionals from 80 countries around the world, and 1,600 international suppliers and companies.

The exhibition-cum-conference is considered to be a key venue for professionals to converge and experience, discover, network, discuss and debate core industry issues.
