Saudi Arabian University monorail to use Tratos cable

Specialist cable manufacturer Tratos Cavi S.p.A. has won a £400,000 contract for the supply of medium and low voltage cables for a monorail at a new University in Saudi Arabia.

The Princess Nora Bint Abdulrahman University for Women is expected to cover 8 million square metres and located north of Riyadh. The university will include administration buildings, 13 faculties, a 700-bed student hospital, laboratories, research centres, and a residential area for students and staff. The capacity of the university will be around 26,000 students.

Tratos won the contract to supply cables for the 11 kilometre long monorail line and depot due to the quality of the product, all of which are manufactured to the relevant European standards. The cables have to cope with high temperatures (up to 50ºC) and adverse atmospheric conditions including sand and dust storms.
