Dubai: Ducab Group, an end-to-end energy solutions provider and manufacturing firm in the UAE, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with leading Moroccan engineering firm Somagec Group to develop power, transmission systems, and electrification in Angola.
The agreement was signed in the presence of Mr. Omar Abdulrahman Al Tunaiji, Acting Chargé d’Affaires of the Embassy of the UAE in Rabat, Morocco; Mr. Charles Mellagui, CEO of Ducab Cables Business; Mr. Mauro Martins, Executive Director at Angola’s Rede Nacional de Transporte de Electricidade (RNT); Mr. Mehdi Tazi, General Vice-President of the General Confederation of Moroccan Enterprises representing the Moroccan Government; and Mr. Roger Sahyoun, CEO of Somagec Group, along with executives and officials from both parties.
The MoU marks Ducab’s first supply into Angola, underscoring the company’s commitment to continuously expanding its footprint and powering global progress.
The Group already supplies its advanced, ‘Made in the UAE’ products to 15 countries in Africa, which means over a quarter (27 percent) of Ducab Group’s international activity is directed towards the African continent.
Ducab Group is set to provide approximately 2,000 kilometres of overhead transmission lines, along with high, medium, and low voltage (HV/MV/LV) cables, to the Angolan energy sector.
The energy transmitted through these lines is generated at grid-connected hydropower plants, namely LAUCA, CAMBAMBE, GOVE, and MATALA. The project is scheduled for completion within two years, paving the way for enhanced electrical infrastructure and connectivity in Angola.
“We take pride in Ducab’s cables and solutions, all of which are ‘Made in the UAE’, which are currently supporting major industrial and infrastructure projects in 55 countries,” Mr. Mellagui added.
