04/02/2014

UAE has a high potential for investment in electrical equipment for major infrastructure developed in the region, and this has led to the expansion of new equipment manufacturers, whose products should be checked to comply with local standards.
 
As a member of LOVAG (Low Voltage Agreement), an organization recognized by the Abu Dhabi Distribution Company (ADDC), Applus+ has conducted its first certification of capacitor banks made ​​and marketed in the United Arab Emirates in close collaboration and with the support of the local firm 3e Group (Electrical Energy Efficiency). All manufacturers and marketers of capacitor banks who want to install their equipment shall certify them in accordance with the standards and specifications required by Abu Dhabi Distribution Company (ADDC).
 
Currently, Applus+ is testing and certifying this type of equipment for most manufacturers in the area. Abu Dhabi Distribution Company (ADDC) is a pioneer in the UAE developing and applying specifications to validate capacitor banks thus ensuring the quality and safety of all of the capacitor banks that are installed in buildings and infrastructure in its territory.
 
“The beginning of this type of high added value work introduces us to a market with significant growth prospects, associated with the test and certification and the development of infrastructure in the region, said Jordi Brufau, Executive Vice President of Applus + Laboratories.
