The company has been recognised internationally as a pioneer in cable advancements. Aberdare serves on a number of SABS and International Electro Technical Commission (IEC) cable working groups. As much as ten years ago, in a move towards facilitating the provision of electricity for all countrywide, Aberdare Cables designed products with an emphasis on cost efficiency of electrification. To this end, Aberdare created its Electrodac range, which is aimed specifically at facilitating rural electrification by lowering the cost of electricity delivery. More recently, in accordance with Siemens specifications, Aberdare produced an unarmoured cable, with stringent fire characteristics, that was designed to reduce the propagation of fire by cables. This cable is used at Eskom’s open-cycle gas turbine generators at Mossel Bay and Atlantis. To cater for international markets, Aberdare introduced fire survival cable with stringent properties that allow continuous operation and circuit integrity for extended periods during a fire.
As a proudly South African company, Aberdare participated actively in the development of the ICT charter and the draft DTI BBBEE codes. Aberdare will continue to adopt a proactive approach to effect the transformation that the codes specify and to lead the cable industry in this regard.
