Ducab, UAE-based manufacturer of high-quality cables and cabling products, has announced a new project with JOPETWIL Industrial Company LLC, subsidiary of Control Contracting and Trading Company (CCTC), for the jack-up barge ‘JOPETWIL 300’
This project marks Ducab’s first marine offshore project in Abu Dhabi and features cables from its MarineBICC product lines.
The ‘JOPETWIL 300’ jack-up barge is equipped with a hydraulic jacking system with four cylindrical legs and is capable of working in water depths of up to 40 metres. Ducab will provide cables to upgrade the barge to accommodate more personnel on board and the renovations will more than double the capacity accommodating 270 personnel on board, up from the previous capacity of a 100.
According to the company, the high-quality and long-life cables are suitable for extreme temperatures and moisture, and are braided for extra protection, without affecting the flexibility of the cable. In order to improve fire safety onboard ships, barges, and offshore platforms, the MarineBICC product range is also fire-safety-certified, fire -retardant and with low smoke emission.
Mohammed A. Al Mutawa, chief commercial officer, Ducab, said, “We are proud that our market-leading MarineBICC fire performance cables have been selected after careful comparison for their certified adherence to globally recognised standards coupled with the expert knowledge and experience in the industry that Ducab offers. MarineBICC cables are designed to have a long life and proven effectiveness in extreme conditions, suitable to this significant project and we look forward to new prospects in and beyond the Middle East region.”
Saleh Muqattash, CEO of CCTC added that they put emphasis on providing quality service with every project the company delivers, which begins right from the crucial design stage. “We look forward to working with Ducab on this unique project and are assured that the quality, safety, and longevity of the product will be a significant asset to the JOPETWIL 300.”
