Specialist cable manufacturer Tratos Cavi S.p.A has been awarded a $1.33 million (€1 million) contract to supply Iraq's state-owned Midland Refineries Company (MRC) with cables for installation at the Daura Refinery in Baghdad.

A range of power cables, high temperature cables and fire resistant cables have been supplied to MRC, a new customer for Tratos, as part of the modernisation process of the Refinery.

The Daura refinery, located in the south of Baghdad, was constructed in 1953 and started operations in 1955. It daily produces 3 million litres of gasoline, 1.5 million litres of kerosene and 2 million litres of gas oil, along with other products going to local power plants and industrial use.
