INTRODUCTION
Ducab is the leading manufacturer of electric cables in the Middle East. Established in 1979, the company is owned by
the Governments of Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Ducab is based in Jebel Ali, however to keep pace with the steady growth of
the region, Ducab opened a second factory in Abu Dhabi in 2005. This state of the art facility doubles the production
capacity enabling Ducab to better service its customers.
This catalogue provides working information on Ducabs complete range of Ducab Powerplus Cables rated up to
33 kV. Separate catalogues are available for Ducabs range of Control and Auxiliary Cables, Wiring Cables, Ducab
Smokemaster LSF Cables and XLPE Low Voltage Cables.
This brochure contains technical information covering the Ducab Powerplus range of XLPE insulated medium
voltage cables rated up to U0/U = 18/30kV i.e., equivalent to 33kV rating of the British Standards. The applicable standards
are IEC 60502-2 and BS 6622.
The Ducab Powerplus cable range includes copper and aluminium conductors in a range of voltages with a choice
of single or three core armoured and unarmoured, a range of sheathing, screening, taping and armouring options. To
locate particular voltages and cable designs and eliminate errors a look-up guide has been included (see pages 6 & 7).
This acts as a guide to the cable data for the Ducab Powerplus range of cables set out in pages 8 - 57.
Technical Data is covered in pages 58 - 65. Cable handling instructions appear in pages 66 - 67.
The cable designs in this brochure are to IEC 60502-2 and in most parts to BS 6622. Ducab can also supply a range
of alternative designs to meet more specialised customer needs including water blocking, Ducab Smokemaster to BS
7835 and enhanced fire performance. Alternative sheathing materials and colours can also be manufactured along with
cables to individual customer specifications.
Ducab Connect range of cable components and accessories for medium voltage cables are also available on request.

Quality
Where Quality is a Way of Life
The definition of quality in Ducab goes far beyond the conformance of product to
specified requirements. Ducab is committed to providing the customer with total quality
excellence of product and service that fully meets expectations and is superior in value
to that which can be obtained elsewhere.
Since its inception, Ducab has an unrivaled reputation for quality in the region. For
many years the company has worked to raise quality awareness in Dubai and
throughout the Gulf. The companys Quality Management System was certified to ISO
9001 in 1995 and upgraded in 2002 to the new, more stringent ISO 9001 : 2000
standard by BASEC (British Approval Service for Cables), a reputed UKAS accredited
certification body specialising in the cable industry. Ducab was the first cable company
in the Middle East to achieve this distinction.
In 1997, Ducab became the first manufacturing company in the Middle East to
obtain the ISO 14001 environmental certification.
Ducab is also the only cable manufacturer in the Middle East to obtain product type
approval of a range of low voltage cables to British Standards by BASEC (The British
Approvals Service for Cables). This approval is only awarded to manufacturers who
meet the requirements of BS EN ISO 9000 Quality Management Standard and
certified by BASEC.
Ducab cables have been type tested in reputed external laboratories like KEMA,
The Netherlands; BRE, UK; CPRI, India, etc. Ducab is proud to hold Lloyds approval
for various product range.

Quality Assurance
Ducabs quality management system is certified for conformance to ISO 9001
Standard by BASEC.
Ducabs medium voltage cables have been accepted as world class following the
type testing and certification of several products by the KEMA High Voltage
Laboratory in the Netherlands. Type testing included the requirements of the IEC
60502-2 standard and some of the stringent provisions of BS 6622: 1999 standard.
11kV and 33kV cables tested by KEMA consistently exhibited discharge-free
characteristics. These cables also withstood Basic Impulse Levels of 95kV and 195kV
respectively as against 75kV and 175kV specified in IEC 60502-2.
Ducabs high voltage test facility includes modern, highly sensitive partial discharge
test equipment, situated in a fully screened room. For materials and in-process cable
tests, well-equipped laboratories, manned by experienced and trained personnel are
available. A separate cable fire test facility exists for IEC 60332 Pt. 3, smoke density
and other tests.

Cable Selection
It is essential that any design of a cable system selected for a particular project or a distribution
system is suitable for its intended use. Choice needs to be based on a range of factors including
installation specifications, local regulations and the required performance characteristics, some of
which are shown below:
normal current load
maximum fault current and its duration under fault conditions
voltage grade
subsoil conditions for underground installations e.g., presence of water, soil temperature and
thermal resistivity, possible attack of rodents, termites etc.
cable fire performance requirements
compatibility with an existing distribution system
In the tables in the next section, cable constructions and performance features correspond to IEC
60502-2 Standard and Ducabs in-house quality norms.

Cable Design and Construction


CONDUCTORS
The conductors of all Ducabs HV and MV cables, both copper and aluminium, with the exception
of very large sizes of 800sq mm and above, are all HCC + design.
These are highly compacted and concentric conductors and offer the following advantages:
* Smaller overall size
* Smoother conductor/conducting screen interface
Conductors of 800 sq mm and above, are plain stranded and wrapped with penetration resistant
semi-conductive tape prior to passage through the triple extrusion line.
All conductors comply with the requirements of IEC 60228, Class 2.
CONDUCTOR SCREEN
This is a layer of crosslinkable semi-conducting compound extruded directly over the conductor
during the XLPE insulation extrusion.
INSULATION
All Ducabs MV and HV cables feature DFI XLPE insulation which is virtually discharge free,
ensuring a long and trouble-free service life.
The insulation is extruded and dry cured to meet the requirements of the standards and/or
customer specification. A high degree of concentricity is assured through the use of x-ray monitoring
device during extrusion. The XLPE insulation is capable of operation continuously at 90C.
INSULATION SCREEN
This is a layer of cross-linkable semi-conducting compound extruded directly over the insulation
at the same time when the conductor screen and XLPE insulation are extruded. This semi-conducting
screen is cold strippable but fully bonded screens may be provided, if specified.

Cable Selection
METALLIC SCREEN
The metallic screen can be a helically applied copper tape or a number of copper wires applied with a
lay or a combination of tape and wires applied over the semi-conducting screen. The metallic screen
provides the earth fault current path and it is of a cross section designed as per customers performance
specification.
In case of three core cables, phase identification tapes (red/yellow/blue) are generally longitudinally
applied under the metallic screen.
LAYING

UP

In the case of three core cables, the three cores identified as red, yellow and blue are laid up together
with polypropylene string fillers at the interstices between the three cores. A binder e.g., polyester tape is
wrapped round the assembly to form a compact circular cable during this process.
BEDDING SHEATH
Black polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or Polyethylene (PE) Compound is extruded over the laid up 3 core cable
or on the screened single core cables.
ARMOURING
This process is not applicable if an unarmoured cable is specified. If armour is required, then following
variations are possible:
Single Core Cables:
Aluminium armour wires applied all round the cable with a lay.
Three Core Cables:
a) Galvanised Steel Wires applied all round the cable with a lay.
b) Galvanised Steel Tapes applied helically to provide coverage all round the cable.
OVERSHEATH
This is an extruded layer of black PVC (Type ST2) or PE (Type ST 3 or ST7) as required by customer
specification. The oversheath has an embossed legend in two or more lines appropriate for the cable.
SPECIAL FEATURES
The cable as a whole or its specific cores or other design elements can vary in a number of ways to
meet specific customer needs. The following are some examples, and by no means an exhaustive list of
special features possible:
Longitudinal and radial water blocking of conductors, cores or complete cable.
Extra water-tree retardant XLPE insulation
Lead sheath construction
PVC oversheath with:
a) reduced flame propagation (RP) and low HCL (LHCL) emission properties
b) anti-termite properties
Ducab Smokemaster Low Smoke and Fume construction using zero-halogen bedding and
oversheath
Oversheath of red colour with sulphide-resistant and/or UV resistant properties
Graphite coated oversheath
Embossed legend as per customer specification
Metre length marking

Technical Data
Current Ratings and Rating Factors
The current ratings of copper and aluminium conductor cables stated in the tables in this catalogue are based on the IEC 287 Publication, assuming
continuous conductor operating temperature of 90C, for cables laid underground or in air, or drawn through ducts.
These ratings are applicable for conditions defined in the tables and derating factors need to be applied in case of variations in:
Ambient temperature
Ground temperature
Depth of buried cable
Thermal resistivity of soil
Multiple circuits and their configuration
Appropriate tables for derating factors are provided in the latter part of this catalogue.
Short Circuit Ratings
The short circuit rating graphs given in this catalogue assume final conductor temperature of 250C rising from 90C i.e., in a fully loaded condition.
It is therefore necessary that accessories used with the cables are also capable of operation at these values of fault current and temperature.
The tables also indicate the specific short circuit fault current rating for a duration of one second for each cable size and type. When the fault duration
(t) is different, then the appropriate rating may be obtained by multiplying the 1 second rating by the factor 1/t.
Short circuit forces should be taken into account when single core cables are installed touching each other. Cleating and strapping should be such
that repulsive forces that occur under short circuit conditions are contained.

Installation
Cables described in this publication are suitable for laying direct in ground, in air or drawn through ducts. Special construction features are needed
when sustained wet conditions prevail in the ground.
Cable pulling forces have to be limited according to the total conductor cross section area (A) in mm2 and the maximum may be limited to A x 50
Newtons for copper and A x 30 Newtons for aluminium.
Cable bending radii are recommended as follows:

Effect of grouping cables: No reduction in rating is necessary where there is free


circulation of air around the circuits provided that:
1. The horizontal clearance between circuits is not less than twice the overall diameter of
an individual cable.
2. The vertical clearance between circuits is not less than four times the diameter of an
individual cable.
3. If the number of circuits exceeds three, they are installed in a horizontal plane.

Copper Screen for single core unarmoured cables:


It is common practice to provide copper screen of minimum cross-sectional area (as indicated below) for single core
unarmoured cables, unless specific earth fault requirements of the system govern the same. In the latter case, it is
advisable to design the copper screen to carry the specified earth fault current.

Cable Drum Handling


Ducab Medium Voltage cables should be installed by trained personnel in
accordance with good engineering practices, recognised codes of practice,
statutory local requirements, IEE wiring regulations and where relevant, in
accordance with any specific instructions issued by the company. Cables are
often supplied in heavy cable drums and handling these drums can constitute
a safety hazard. In particular, dangers may arise during the removal of steel
binding straps and during the removal of retaining battens and timbers which
may expose projecting nails.
For detailed information, refer to Ducab's Drum Handling Instructions
Catalogue.
