The Chief Operating Officer (COO) of MicCom Cables and Wires Limited, Bukola Adubi, earlier in October paid a visit to the Dubai labaoratory of British Approvals Service for Cables (BASEC), a global leader in product testing and certification services for power, energy, data/signal cables and ancillary products whose head office is in the UK.

During the visit at the BASEC lab in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, discussion centred on Low Voltage and Medium Voltage cable testing, especially as it concerns the Nigerian and West African market.

The enactment of the Nigerian Oil and Gas Industry Content Development (NOGICD) Act in 2010 has helped to deepen local content in the Nigerian oil and gas industry. Following the enactment, cable manafacturers in the country are gradually playing active roles with manufacturing and supplies of cables used in the industry. However, International Oil Companies (IOCs) and other companies operating in the country’s oil and gas industry, typically insist on the type testing of the cables before purchase.

The  Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) have recently included type testing of cables as part of their product offerings to the cable industry in Nigeria.   Mrs Adubi is of the opinion that partnering BASEC and other global third-party testing companies will be of immense benefit to the cable manafacturers in Nigeria.  The potential for SON collaboration with these companies will be a welcome development to the industry.

Noting the importance of type testing of cables, Adubi said  thatthird-party type testing of locally produced cables will make Nigerian cables internationally appealing and ready for export.  This is in turn will provide the much needed foreign exchange influx into the economy.

MicCom Cables and Wires Limited is a manufacturer of all kinds of cables and wires, which includes House Wire Cables, All Copper Conductor ( ACC), Power Cables Armoured and Non- Armoured, All Aluminum Conductors ( AAC), Aluminum Conductor Steel Reinforced (ACSR), Flexible and Control Cables, as well as XLPE Cables.
