Abu Dhabi CP, S.Korean president mark completion of 1st station of Barakah nuke plant

Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan and South Korean Preident Moon Jae-in attended on Monday a ceremony in Abu Dhabi marking the completion of the first station of the UAE's Barakah project.

The United Arab Emirates has, thus, become the first Arab state having peaceful nuclear station.

Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahayan said this historical achievement contributes to placing the UAE on the international map as the UAE peaceful nuclear program plays a vital role in accelerating economic growth and diversifying economic resources.

He underlined the depth of the strategic partnership between the UAE and S.Korea.

He added that the UAE will continue playing a pioneering role in investing in sustainable Development projects. 

The UAE' first nuclear power plant was tested earlier this month.

The Barakah project - the world’s largest single nuclear project- consists of four nuclear plants.

Over 92% of the second plant was completed, 81% of the third and more than 66% of the fourth.

The Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation (ENEC) named Peter Dietrich - who has been serving in the nuclear sector for 27 years - as the corporation's Chief Nuclear Officer (CNO).

Dietrich will be responsible for developing the UAE's peaceful nuclear program and gearing up a generation of UAE nuclear experts to be in charge of running the project in the future.

Pursuing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the four nuclear power plants will cut 21 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions.

Korea Electric Power Corp. (KEPCO) won a 2009 tender for building the Barakah project. Nawah Energy Co., a joint venture of ENEC and KEPCO, was established to operate all four plants.
