New Partnership with Midal Cables

New Partnership with Midal Cables

Midal Cables Limited was established in 1977 conceived between Intersteel, Bahrain and Olex Cables, Australia to manufacture aluminum rod and overhead electrical transmission cables, conductors. Since then, the company has developed into a significant player in the aluminum and electrical transmission industry in Kingdom of Bahrain. Its growth has contributed to the industrialization of Bahrain and Gulf countries while promoting a national skilled workforce within the company. Midal supplies the world market with rod cast from the molten aluminum delivered directly from Aluminium Bahrain (ALBA) smelter adjacent to its manufacturing plant. The liquid aluminum is exceptionally pure which allows Midal to cast rod and further production of wires an exceptionally high conductivity in various grades of transmission cables. Midal's EC grade and 6201 alloy rod are sold around the world as well as being used in-house to manufacture a full range of overhead electrical conductors and aluminum wires.

Ontario utilities can lower customer bills through In Front of the Meter Conservation (IFMC)

Ontario utilities can lower customer bills through In Front of the Meter Conservation (IFMC)

Energy efficiency is a central pillar of Ontario's Long Term Energy Plan (LTEP). Additionally, utilities are provided with conservation incentives and targets as part of Ontario's 2015-2020 Conservation First Framework (CFF).  Under the update to the LTEP released in the fall of 2017, utilities can now count savings generated from In Front of the Meter Conservation (IFMC) towards these targets.

Southern States MACI®

Southern States MACI®

Verifying proper blade depth and rotation of a high voltage disconnect switch closure has created challenges for ground level operators. Southern States MACI® introduces patented magnetic technology to provide highly-visible, foolproof indication of a proper switch closure. By providing this assurance, the potential for unwanted costs associated with unplanned power outages is minimized. Additionally, MACI®’s reflective “closed” pattern provides visibility up to 100 ft and will not interfere with operation, even in icy conditions.
