Ducab HV announces Dubai solar park project win

MBR solar park DucabDucab HV, a subsidiary of Ducab Group, will supply and install high-voltage cable for phase five of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, the world’s largest single-site solar park based on the independent power producer model

The solar park project is in line with Dubai Electricity and Water Authority’s (DEWA) aim to position Dubai as a global hub for clean energy and green economy through several initiatives. Ducab is supporting DEWA on this project to achieve the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 which aims to provide 75% of Dubai’s total power output from clean energy by 2050.

Renewable energy is a focus of governments throughout the Middle East as they seek to move away from hydrocarbon reliance and develop more diverse energy grids. Customised cabling is thus in high demand for projects that seek to harness the power of solar, wind, and nuclear energy.

The phase five project of the MBR Solar Park involves a quantity of approximately 275km of cable, with relevant accessories and terminations also provided. The project will be executed over three plots of 300 megawatts each and is one of the most cost-effective solar parks in the world. In addition to cable and accessory supply, Ducab HV will be responsible for cable installation as the cable subcontractor appointed by Shanghai Electric of China. The latest project award follows Ducab HV having successfully energised the full turnkey 132kV system for Phase 3 of the MBR Solar Park.

Mike Engelbrecht, CEO of Ducab HV, said, “The project will see quality, ‘Made in UAE’ cables continue to be incorporated into the landmark site, powering the development of the country for many years to come and a testament to the UAE government’s strategy to develop in country competence.”

Meng Chuan Min, general manager of MBR V, Shanghai Electric Group, added, “This project requires premium partners who can turn the vision of MBR Solar Park into a reality. With a proven track record and impeccable standards of excellence, as well as products that meet world-class standards, Ducab HV won the award after fierce competition with world-class cable tenderers, due to Ducab HV’s highest cost performance and customer orientation service.”
