With a modern PVC compounding plant at its Jebel Ali facility, Ducab produces flexible PVC compounds used for insulating and sheathing of electric cables. The plant includes automated weighing and dosing systems for each component of the various formulations. A centralised control system, which includes a dedicated video graphic display system, facilitates user-friendly operation of the whole plant while maintaining accurate control of each component.
Ducab HV (DHV) is the first dedicated high voltage (60kV – 150kV) and extra high voltage (220kV – 500kV) power cable manufacturing facility in the Middle East. The company is a joint venture between Ducab Group (50%); Abu Dhabi Water and Electricity Authority (ADWEA – 25%) and Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA – 25%).
The DHV facility is a state of the art plant employing the latest machinery and technology available to produce HV and EHV cable. In order for the factory to maximise its resources and produce world’s best practice within a reliable and repeatable process it was decided at the outset to also align with an experienced cable technology partner.
HV and EHV manufacturing technology has been in existence since the 1960’s when Japanese cable makers were the first to produce XLPE insulated cables in these voltage ranges. A natural fit with a technology leader has therefore now also been cemented with the signing of a technology transfer agreement between DHV and J-Power Systems (a Japanese joint venture company bringing together the combined HV and EHV power cable expertise of Hitachi and Sumitomo).
The combined experience, technology and know-how brought together by DHV’s facilities, its shareholders and its engagement with its technology partner culminate in making it a formidable player in the power cable market. The company draws on the best available resources worldwide and looks forward to bringing its customer base Energy at a Higher Level.
The DHV plant was formally inaugurated by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice-President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai on 29 November 2011 and in the presence of His Highness Sheikh Hamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Crown Prince’s Court.
