UAE’s largest industrial manufacturing business and solution provider, Ducab Group is supplying 633 kilometers of medium voltage and earthing cable to a new Egyptian 70-turbine wind farm in a move that reinforces the strong industrial partnership between the UAE and Egypt.

The Gulf of Suez project in Egypt will play a key role in the country’s commitment to generate 42 percent of all electricity from renewable energy by 2035 and helps in saving around 600,000 tons of CO2 every year.

The company said in a statement that “the project is one of the largest developed utility-scale wind power plants in Egypt and will contribute 250MW of renewable energy generation to the country’s energy mix from the 70 turbines being installed in an area of 57 Km2.”

Ducab Group has partnered with Vestas, an EPC contractor, and supplier of the 70 wind turbines, for the project.

“We are committed to supporting countries achieve their sustainability ambitions and our solutions are in high demand for solar and wind power projects around the world. Ducab already supplies solutions to landmark renewable energy infrastructure in 55 countries, but we are proud that demand for our expertise, experience, and quality solutions is experiencing significant growth as more and more countries, such as Egypt, decarbonize and transition to renewables.”

In addition to the Gulf of Suez wind farm, Ducab has provided solutions for a wide range of milestone renewable energy projects in the Middle East including the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, the Shams 1 project, and the Al Barakah nuclear plant in the UAE.

The company has also initiated renewable energy projects across 55 countries and in April this year announced its first solar park partnership in Mexico, as per the statement.
