CTC Global has signed an agreement with Ducab Metals Business (DMB), a subsidiary of Ducab Group, to manufacture CTC Global’s high-capacity, energy-efficient ACCC® conductors in the UAE. DMB will import composite cores from the US to manufacture ACCC® conductors which help in increasing the capacity of transmission lines, and reduction of transmission losses and associated CO2 emissions. DMB will contribute to the expansion of the UAE’s national power grid by using the conductors to accelerate the integration of renewable energy, resulting in enhanced efficiency, capacity, reliability, and conservation of water consumed at thermal power plants.
The agreement was signed during the Middle East Energy event held on Thursday, March 9th, 2023. Mr. Mohamed Al Ahmedi, CEO of DMB, Mr. Charles Mellagui, CEO of Ducab Cables Business, Mr. Steve Jackman, CTC Global’s Senior Vice President for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), Mrs. Anne McDowell, CTC Global’s Vice President of Commercial Operations, and Mr. Frank Joseph, Principal Commercial Officer at the U.S. Consulate General in Dubai were in attendance at the event.
Mr. Mohamed Al Ahmedi addressed the agreement, “We are committed to the UAE’s efforts to tackle climate change and reduce carbon emissions, and to that end, offer our full support to the Net Zero by 2050 strategic initiative, especially in the lead-up to COP28. The initiative calls for deeper carbon emissions cut, and implementing CTC Global’s energy-efficient conductors on a large scale is a significant step towards achieving that objective.”
Mr. Steve Jackman commented, “DMB is a trusted and reliable partner in the Middle East, and its industry leadership in the UAE will ensure the benefits of CTC Global’s high-performance conductors have the maximum reach possible.”
Mrs. Anne McDowell further added, “This partnership supports our growth strategy to deliver high-performance ACCC® conductors to a wider global audience. With the recognition by the UAE of the need to modernize the country’s electricity grid, and conserve water resources, we envision our partnership will contribute in meaningful ways towards their strategy to meet COP28 goals.”
