Providing services to numerous local and foreign industrial companies operating in different fields, including the shipbuilding, offshore, airport, mining, railway and defence sectors, Üntel Kablo is introducing at the event the “special cables” portfolio that it has compiled. The company manufactures runway lighting cables for end users, including public agencies and Turkish Air Force, in addition to other companies operating in the market. Üntel Kablo took part in seven or eight fairs a year on average, prior to the pandemic, however this is its first virtual one. Having proven its capabilities in its field by means of the products supplied for ANADOLU, which is expected to be the largest tonnage ship in the inventory of Turkish Naval Forces after its completion, Üntel Kablo is seeking to introduce more products to its customers in the defence and aerospace sector at SAHA EXPO.
Onur Serhat Günan, a member of the board of Üntel Kablo, which joined SAHA Istanbul in 2019, provided details of its VG95218 certificated cables for military vessels: “We obtained necessary certification for the VG95218 product groups to be used aboard military vessels that is subject to stringent production and test conditions. We have thus become one of the few cable manufacturers with a certified product in this field in the world, and the first and only company in Turkey. The cables we have designed for military ships and submarines can be used in dry and wet marine environments due to their composition. They release no toxic gases and have a low smoke density, and can be used in settings requiring electromagnetic production thanks to their screens. Weight and size are also important in the VG95218- product group, and Üntel Kablo has obtained certificates for seven different cables from section 60 through to section 66 in that group, each are used for different purposes. We are today one of only three companies that have obtained certificates for these seven sections. It is our intention to become a competitive global player in the export market while continuing to provide services for our national naval ships.”
