Dubai doesn't sleep much either ...

I recently enjoyed a trip to Dubai to liaise with our colleagues there on a demo for the protection of Siemens switchgear for the local power generation authority DEWA. Although it was only a short trip for a meeting organised by Siemens with DEWA engineers, the idea of using Enviropeel was well received by the engineers but, as noted in my very first post, they wanted to see Enviropeel in action.

So, last week an Enviropeel unit left the UK offices for the UAE and this week Steve Flack, the UK's Senior Project Engineer, will be travelling to Dubai to show them what an Enviropeel application looks like.

Steve and the local Enviropeel team have been working on Siemen's substrates in the UK for the past two years and, we are told, one of the senior Siemens people we work with was part of the original team that installed the switchgear in Dubai - many years ago!

Dubai is a fabulous place to visit, very friendly and visually spectacular. There aren't many places you can do business in fabulous 35° sunshine, indulge in some retail therapy - and go tobogganing!

Needless to say, we won't be allowing Steve anywhere near the malls but we hope he will have a successful trip.
 
For those of you with a technical interest in Enviropeel and its use on power generating and distribution sites there is a short presentation available for viewing here
