Ducab wins Bahrain Formula One circuit order
The Dubai Cable Company (Ducab) has won the cable supply contract worth four million Emirati dirhams ($1.08 million) for the Bahrain Formula One International Circuit racetrack project.
One of the key components of the project is the availability and the continuous supply of power. The main areas of application of the cables will be the racetrack, VIP tower, spectator stands and the desalination plant. Cebarco WCT JV is the main contractor for the project.
Bahrain will play host to the first Formula One Grand Prix in the Middle East next April. The construction work, valued at approximately $150 million, is well under way and the circuit is expected to be completed by March next year.
The facility includes a Grand Prix Circuit, which meets the requirements for hosting Formula One cars, providing the Middle East with an international standard venue for all other forms of car and motorcycle racing as well as testing and a range of other motoring activities. The track in Sakhir, some 30 kilometers southwest of the capital, Manama, will accommodate 100,000 spectators and will be operational 365 days a year.
Ducab, established in 1979, is the first purpose-built cable manufacturing company in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and is equally owned by the Government of Dubai and the Government of Abu Dhabi. Its product range covers low voltage power cables, control and auxiliary cables, wiring and lead-sheathed cables, Ducab Powerplus medium voltage cables, Ducab Multi-pair cables, and Ducab Smokemaster, low smoke and fume cables. — (menareport.com)
