Marc Lawrence was recently asked to find an unusual cable for a client who is a specialist in power generation and instrumentation for heavy industry projects. Â One of their site engineers required a very specialist cable for a Nigerian petrochemical client. Instead of a traditional SWA or AWA cable, they were specific in requiring a double taped aluminium screened power cable of length 80m and 300mm single core for the engineering installation.
After contacting traditional cable suppliers around Europe, Marc was able to track down the cable from an overseas cable manufacturer and bring it into the UK for the client. Marc said “despite having been in the industry for almost 15 years, I had never sold this specific cable. The customer would not accept any other substitutes we recommended but were delighted when we eventually found it through one of my overseas contacts”.
It took us just seven days from placing the order with our supplier to have it ready for delivery to our client who was eventually supplied with. Marc went on to say “unfortunately there was a delay to the engineering project in Nigeria, but we were happy to store the cable in our warehouse until they were ready to use it”. We are able to supply a wide range of cable for clients holding stock of the most common cables such as tri rated, Belden and H07RN-F or sourcing more specific cables from around the world as was the case for this project.
