Aberdare Cables is heavily involved in the critical task of powering up South Africa’s infrastructure upgrades, including many of the soccer stadiums around the country, improvements which are currently under way at local airports and on South Africa’s roads and facelifts for hotels and entertainment venues.

The company has been tasked with supplying cables to the Ellis Park stadium, the Loftus Versveld stadium and the Soccer City stadium, in Gauteng. Other stadiums countrywide benefiting from Aberdare’s products include the Cape Town stadium; the Free State stadium, in Bloemfontein; the Mbombela stadium, in Nelspruit; the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace stadium, in Rustenburg; and custom-built stadiums, including the Moses Mabhida stadium, in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN), the Nelson Mandela Bay stadium, in Port Elizabeth, and the Peter Mokaba sports stadium, at Polokwane, in Limpopo.

The company will supply significant quantities of cabling for King Shaka International Airport, at La Mercy, as well as the second phase of the Dube TradePort. In KZN, Aberdare Cables is also involved in the intake of street lighting on the N2 and upgrades to the Western freeway in Durban and the Gateway bridge. In the Gauteng province, the company is also involved in projects for the South African National Roads Agency. Also, Sun City, in North West province, is being upgraded to accommodate the additional influx of expected tourists. The Holiday Inn, in Rosebank, is benefiting from Aberdare’s input into the improvement of its facilities.

Infrastructure development in South Africa is critical to the success of the FIFA World Cup’s success, and Aberdare’s strategic contribution in partnership with various customers will serve to ensure that the equipment used during the event will enhance South Africa’s reputation globally.
