ENEC’s Program

By 2020, we aim to provide about one quarter of the nation’s energy needs with safe, clean and reliable electricity. Since ENEC’s inception, we have made significant progress against this mission:

  • Awarded the Prime Contract to the Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO), a company with a world-class record in safety, construction, plant reliability and efficiency.
  • Selected the design for the UAE’s first nuclear reactors, the APR1400, proven technology with the highest safety standards.
  • Identified the preferred site for the nuclear energy plants – Braka, in the Western Region of Abu Dhabi.
  • Submitted to the Federal Authority for Nuclear Regulation a Construction License Application for Braka Units 1 and 2, which makes the safety case for the plants and the location.

Throughout all areas of our program we are committed to operating to the highest standards of safety, quality and complete operational transparency.

 

Glossary:
Nuclear reactor

The part of a nuclear power plant where nuclear fission occurs, producing heat.
Glossary:
Nuclear energy

The energy that is released during a nuclear reaction. Splitting atoms (fission) and fusing atoms (fusion) both release nuclear energy. Today's nuclear power plants use fission to produce energy, which allow them to generate electricity on a large scale.
