The Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation (ENEC) has now passed the halfway mark for full commercial operations of the Barakah Nuclear Power Plant.

ENEC’s MD and CEO, Mohamed Ibrahim Al Hammadi, said the Plant is the biggest infrastructure project in the UAE and is key to the UAE’s clean energy transition.

He described how the development of the Plant has been in line with the overall delivery plan and expected the two remaining Units, 3 and 4, to be delivered on time.

Al Hammadi said “the Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant is a great investment that is paying dividends today and will continue to do so in the coming decades. Both Units 1 and 2 are commercially operating. By developing four identical Units, we have given ourselves a learning curve across each Unit with the development of Units 3 and 4 allowing for 50 percent less manpower compared to Units 1 and 2. We are very proud of the young Emiratis working at the Plant that are driving research and development with STEM knowledge and expertise.” 

Al Hammadi said private companies are eagerly buying clean energy certificates to demonstrate proof of the clean electricity they use, which has been produced at the Barakah Plant and Abu Dhabi’s solar facilities.

ENEC’s CEO was talking on the ‘Titans of Nuclear’ podcast that features interviews with experts throughout the nuclear energy field, covering advanced technology, economics, policy, industry and more.
