02-12-2017 16:23:38

The 5,600MW Barakah nuclear power plant (NPP) in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi is the first nuclear power project being developed in United Arab Emirates (UAE). It is being constructed approximately 53km west-southwest of the city of Ruwais, by Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation (ENEC).

The groundbreaking ceremony for the $32bn project, which will consist of four units of 1,400MW each, was held in March 2011. Construction of unit 1 started in July 2012 following receipt of construction license from the Federal Authority of Nuclear Regulation (FANR) and environmental approval from the Environment Agency – Abu Dhabi.

It is expected that the first unit will come online in 2017, while all the four units are predicted to be operational by 2020. The project is expected to deliver up to a quarter of the nation’s electricity needs and save approximately 12 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions a year, when fully-commissioned.
