Oil and Gas - - REGIONAL NEWS -

Prys­mian Group, world leader in the en­ergy and tele­com ca­bles and sys­tems in­dus­try, sup­plied over 500 km of FP Fire Re­sis­tant ca­bles for the Lou­vre Abu Dhabi, which opened its doors to the pub­lic on Novem­ber 11, 2017.

The com­pany sup­plied its en­hanced fire re­sis­tant ca­bles, a mix­ture of both FPPLUS and FPPLUS FLEX ca­bles, which of­fer ex­tended fire sur­vival times, cou­pled with low flame spread and very low emis­sion of smoke and dan­ger­ous gases in the event of a fire. This al­lows guests longer time to evac­u­ate the build­ing and en­sures bet­ter op­er­at­ing con­di­tions for the emer­gency teams. More­over, fir­ere­sis­tant ca­bles en­sure power sup­ply and fire alarm sys­tem op­er­a­tion dur­ing a fire.

De­signed by Jean Nou­vel, the epony­mous Mu­seum is the largest one in the Ara­bian Penin­sula. Its in­spi­ra­tion is to be a ‘mu­seum city’ in the sea, with its con­trast­ing se­ries of 55 white build­ings, in­clud­ing 23 gal­leries in­spired by the me­d­ina and low-ly­ing Arab set­tle­ments, a tem­po­rary ex­hi­bi­tion space, a Chil­dren’s Mu­seum, a 200-seater-au­di­to­rium, a restau­rant, a café, and re­tail.

“At Prys­mian, we have a mis­sion: to sup­ply our cus­tomers with the most ap­pro­pri­ate, in­no­va­tive and tech­no­log­i­cally ad­vanced ca­bles for ev­ery ap­pli­ca­tion.”, said An­to­nio Chi­antore, Gen­eral Man­ager Prys­mian Mid­dle East “We un­der­stand the cru­cial role our ca­bles play in build­ing safety so we en­sure, through con­tin­u­ous in­vest­ment in in­no­va­tion, that we of­fer prod­ucts that not only pro­vide the best in func­tion­ing abil­ity but also meet the high­est stan­dards of prod­uct safety. That’s why once again our ca­bles have been se­lected for one of the most in­no­va­tive and iconic build­ings in the world, where in­valu­able art works will be hosted,” ended Chi­antore.

In line with its strat­egy of fo­cus­ing on high-tech busi­nesses and prod­ucts, Prys­mian Group has de­vel­oped a com­plete range of high­per­for­mance fire-safety ca­bles for the in­fra­struc­ture sec­tor, which it has in­stalled in many pres­ti­gious build­ings around the world where safety is a crit­i­cal re­quire­ment. Among the par­tic­u­larly no­table in­stal­la­tions are: the Burj Khal­ifa in Dubai, the world’s tallest build­ing, the Guggen­heim Mu­seum in Bil­bao, the Drax Power Sta­tion in the United King­dom, the world’s largest re­new­able en­ergy project us­ing biomass fuel, the Shard in Lon­don, the tallest build­ing in Western Europe, and the Ma­rina Bay Sands in Sin­ga­pore, one of the most in­no­va­tive ar­chi­tec­tural projects ever un­der­taken.
