Cables head gives Keynote speech in India


Chief Executive of the British Approvals Service for Cables Dr Jeremy Hodge was a keynote speaker at a prestigious cable conference being staged in Mumbai.

Dr Hodge talked about new technical developments, environmental legislation, harmonization, fire performance and global trade.

The theme of Cablewire 2008, was Facing Challenges and Meeting Expectations and provided a platform for sharing  knowledge and experience on technology, global trends and problem solving.

Dr Hodge said: "This highlighted some key industry issues on a global scale and at the same time raised awareness of the benefits BASEC can bring especially in the field of new legislation, harmonization across territories and the issue of faulty cables."

Organized by IEEMA, the Indian Electrical & Electronics Manufacturers' Association, technical papers were also given by utilities, cable manufacturers, consultants, academic institutions and research and testing organisations.

The event was held at the Renaissance Mumbai Hotel and Convention Center, Powai, Mumbai, and was run in conjunction with Elecrama, one of the largest exhibitions of power, electrical, industrial electronics and allied products in the east.

By detailed examination of manufacturers' production processes and controls, and rigorous testing, BASEC ensures that cable products meet appropriate national, European and international standards.
