Prysmian Group, manufacturer of energy and telecom cables and systems, will showcase state-of-the-art technologies at Middle East Electricity (MEE) 2016 in Dubai from 1-3 March
The product portfolio at the show will focus on the full range of state-of-the-art power cables including HV and EHV underground and submarine cable systems for applications such as interconnections between power grids, links between natural or artificial islands and the mainland, and connections to, or between, offshore oil production facilities. Prysmian Group will also present a wide range of cables and systems for the oil and gas and petrochemical industry, as well as innovative specialties such as the PRY-CAM Partial Discharge (PD) testing system and TECSUN cables for use in solar applications.
PRY-CAM is an integrated portable instrument for automatic acquisition, processing and classification of pulse signals generated by partial discharge (PD) phenomena occurring in insulating materials of medium and high voltage electrical systems and components such as transformers. TECSUN cables are intended for use in photovoltaic power supply systems as free-movable, free-hanging and for a temperature range from -40°C up to +120°C – perfectly suited to the extreme conditions experienced in the Middle East.
“Middle East Electricity 2016 is an excellent opportunity to showcase the group’s expertise and applications for use in the GCC region,” said Antonio Chiantore, general manager for Middle East, adding, “The Gulf region represents a key area for our expansion strategy, where the group continues to undertake major cable projects that contribute to the further development and improvement of power networks in the entire region.”
These include the first-ever submarine power transmission link serving Doha and the GCCIA Saudi-Bahrain submarine interconnection and the 400 kV power transmission system for TRANSCO connecting the Bahia and Saadiyat Grid Stations in Abu Dhabi, which represents the largest 400kV underground cable system in the region (triple circuit route of 25km for a total of 230km of extruded insulation cable) and the largest EHV XLPE cable system in the world (in terms of contract value) ever awarded to a single supplier.
Over the last year the group has been awarded more new contracts in Kuwait (MEW Jaber Al Ahmad City S3), Oman (OETC Saada Grid Station) and, more recently, Bahrain (EWA 400 kV Transmission Development Project).
