French firms eye UAE nuclear market
Abu Dhabi, June 2, 2010
A total of 28 French companies will showcase French expertise in the civil nuclear field to key UAE officials during a visit to Abu Dhabi later this month.
The purpose of the visit on June 13 and 14 is to take stock of nuclear market opportunities in the UAE, and to explore the potential for commercial and industrial cooperation between the two countries, a statement said.
The French companies, who are members of the French nuclear sector federation (GIIN), will meet the main decision-makers in the nuclear energy field, the Emirates’ Nuclear Energy Corporation (Enec), the public agency in charge of the country’s nuclear policy, and the Korea Electric Power Corporation (Kepco), to discuss possible partnerships.
Workshops will be organised at the Emirates Palace. Enec will present the details of its nuclear project to the French delegation. The teams from the South Korean consortium will present their industrial vision of the project.
This trip will also be an opportunity for delegates to engage with the directors of the ENEC in meetings, particularly to discuss aspects of service, the statement added. – TradeArabia News Service
