RAK Dragon Boat Festival 2014

Posted by Nina Londei on Apr 29, 2014
As the dragon boat season in the U.A.E. comes to an end for the summer, it is with great achievement and hard work that the SIBCA team placed 3rd overall in the Corporate (200m) category!

The end of season race was held in Ras Al Khaimah at Bin Majid Beach Resort on 25th and 26th April 2014. It was a beautiful setting for the races although the waters were rough which made for challenging race conditions. However, this did not deter the team as with each race SIBCA put up a strong fight! The 200m final was a tough one, going up against some of the more established teams but in the end, SIBCA just missed out on 2nd against Emirates Steel. The final times are as follows: 1st AD Mar (0:57:51). 2nd Emirates Steel (1:00:76), 3rd SIBCA (1:01:51), 4th Daman (1:02:04), 5th RAK Marine Club.

It may be the end of the season, but SIBCA will be training throughout the summer and preparing for the next season!

Special thanks to our sponsors: Alerton by Honeywell, Allfreight Export, Power Energy Switchgear, Syssense and Grand Electrical.





















 

Abu Dhabi Corporate Games 2013

Posted by Nina Londei on Dec 18, 2013
Last weekend, SIBCA was proud to take part in the Abu Dhabi Corporate Games 2013. SIBCA staff teams were entered into the Dragon Boat, Cricket and Badminton tournaments.

It was an exciting weekend (12th-14th December) with over 3,000 participants across various companies competing in action-packed events of sporting fun and teamwork. 18 sports were up for offer including football, basketball, table tennis, etc.

The SIBCA teams did not fair too badly in their chosen sports coming in 4th place overall for the dragon boating (200m and 500m distances) and a 1st place win for Men's Singles in the badminton tournament!

Great job to all the staff that took part in this great sporting event and also a huge thank you to our sponsoring partner All Freight.

We look forward to next year's Corporate Games and hope to continue to take part in many more sporting events in the new year!

Dragon Boat Victory!

Posted by Nina Londei on Oct 16, 2013
Congratulations to SIBCA Serpents for winning the Corporate Bowl at The 6th Annual Shangri-La Abu Dhabi Dragon Boat Festival which was held on the 11th and 12th October 2013.

There were over 20 companies competing in the corporate category which is a 200m sprint distance. It was SIBCA's first time to enter a team and with great teamwork we were able to place!

Dragon Boating is a fun and competitve watersport which originates from China. It is a long boat which seats 20 people plus a steersperson. It is essential for the paddlers to work together and move in time to propel the boat forward. This sport is growing in popularity all over the world as it is a great way to incorporate fitness and teamwork.

SIBCA hopes to continue to participate in many more races throughout the season in the U.A.E. so stay tuned!

In the Crowne Plaza Dubai (Sheikh Zayed Road) on 6th June 2012, the Dubai branch of Sibca Electronics hosted a seminar featuring some of Sibca's long term partners - Simplex, Motorola and INOTEC. A representative from each of those companies gave informative presentations of the new products that they currently have on offer. There were also demostration displays from some of Sibca's other partners including ABB i-bus EIB/KNX, VESDA by Xtralis, eyeCOM Securities Ltd, TTK and Phoenix Controls. The seminar also allowed for Mr. Ronald Londei, Managing Director of Sibca Electronics, to introduce Mr. P.V. Raju who is the new Area Manager of Sibca Electronics Dubai.

Mr. Jason Crouch (General Manager, Tyco Fire Protection Products - MEAR) introduced the new 4100ES Simplex Panel during his presentation. For over 25 years, Sibca has been the exclusive dealers in the U.A.E. region for Simplex products. A working demo of the panel as well as various Simplex products were also on display for seminar attendees to peruse and ask questions.

The second half of the seminar was presented by Mr. Youssef Awada (Executive Account Director, Motorola Mobility) who briefly introduced Motorola, and then Mr. Vincent Linder (Sales Manager EMEA, Motorola Mobility) who discussed Motorola's new Passive Optical LAN (POL) technology. POL technology is a direct replacement for Copper Structured Cabling and Active Components.

The last presentation was given by Mr. Heinz Dieter Jaegar (Export Director, INOTEC GMBH) who explained and demonstrated the latest and innovative technologies from INOTEC in emergency lighting panels. These include 230V, 24V as well as DER plugs in type outputs from each panel and a fully integrated Battery Control System that displays, logs and helps maintain individual battery blocks in a battery set.

After the presentations, attendees had the chance to ask questions about the products and were then treated to a delicious buffet dinner. Sibca was also presented with a cake to mark the celebration of being in the U.A.E. for 35 years!
