Enec JV signs agreement with top European nuclear firm

DUBAI, January 22, 2022

Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation (Enec) said its key subsidiary, Nawah, has signed an agreement with Cerap, a leading European nuclear services company, to provide technical services to support refuelling outages and online operations at the Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant.
Cerap has over 30 years of experience, operating in more than 8 countries. It is now partnering with its shareholder Endel, French leader in industrial maintenance and energy services, to offer a comprehensive range of specialized services to Nawah in the UAE. 
The agreement was sealed at the 4th edition of E-Fusion (Emirati-French Industrial Supply Chain Initiative for Nuclear), held as part of the French Nuclear Energy Day at the French Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai. 
The event, which was co-hosted by The Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation (Enec) and the French Nuclear Industry Group Gifen, witnessed the presence of energy experts from local and international nuclear industry companies and government officials.
The participants learned about the latest progress at the Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant, the cornerstone of the UAE Peaceful Nuclear Energy Program, located in the Al Dhafra region of Abu Dhabi. 
They also discussed the growing opportunities for collaboration between UAE and French organizations within the nuclear energy sector. 
Committed to localizations with the Abu Dhabi subsidiary Nusam Limited created in 2021, Cerap and Endel are determined to share their expertise and support the development of the UAE’s nuclear supply chain. 
According to Enec, the Barakah plant is now more than 96 per cent complete and is generating clean electricity around the clock with zero carbon emissions. 
Unit 1 became commercially operational in April 2021, and Unit 2 of the Plant was connected to the UAE grid in August 2021 and recently achieved 100 percent power for the first time as part of the power ascension testing, which happens prior to commercial operation of the Unit, anticipated in the coming months. Units 3 and 4 are in final stages of commissioning.-TradeArabia News Service
