The Dubai Cable Company (Ducab) has won an order worth over 60 million Emirati dirhams ($16.3 million) from the Abu Dhabi Water & Electricity Authority (ADWEA) for the manufacture and supply of more than 500 kilometers of 33kV cables in 2003. This is the biggest single tender won by Ducab for the supply of cables to a regional power utility.

Its product range covers low voltage power cables, control and auxiliary cables, wiring and lead-sheathed cables in addition to Ducab Powerplus medium voltage cables
