Borouge and Borealis showcased their latest cutting-edge products for advanced insulation and cable protection applications at the Middle East Electricity 2017, with Borouge focusing on its new cross-linkable polyethylene (XLPE) solutions
Borouge and Borealis participated with a joint stand at the event, where both companies demonstrated their latest innovations for energy and telecommunication cable applications.
Borouge highlighted its XLPE materials produced at the recently commissioned XLPE plant in Ruwais as part of the Borouge 3 plant. According to the company, Borouge’s XLPE grades are first of its kind to be produced in the UAE using the same exact advanced Borlink technology platform as the Borealis plant in Stenungsund and are used to make plastic insulation materials for low voltage to high voltage power cables. These compounds enable cable companies to manufacture quality end products in accordance with the highest industry standards.
“Our new XLPE materials have gained the interest of various power cable makers participating at the Middle East Electricity exhibition due to its reliability, strength and flexibility properties as the most unique XLPE compound that was produced under the world-renowned Borlink technology and for the first time outside Europe,” said Hazeem Sultan Al Suwaidi, senior vice president regional MEAE at Borouge. “Borouge’s Energy customers in the Middle East and Asia have already started to reap the significant benefits from the commercial availability of our Ruwais made XLPE grades, especially in terms of enhanced consistency, improved material supply and availability.”
Roland Janssen, vice president marketing centre energy at Borouge added that the Middle East Electricity exhibition provided the company with a key opportunity to engage with its Middle Eastern customers, assess their needs and introduce them to its latest products.
