DUBAI, March 13, 2019

The Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation (Enec) said it has signed an agreement with Spanish state- owned company Enusa Industrias Avanzadas for collaboration and exchange of information and expertise in the field of nuclear fuel services.

Enusa, which got incorporated in 1972, is a major player in the engineering, manufacture and supply of nuclear fuel to nuclear power plants as well as to the provision of a broad scope of fuel related services.

Owned by the SEPI holding and the CIEMAT, today Enusa supplies fuel assemblies to the Spanish reactors and exports more than 60 per cent of the production at its Juzbado nuclear fuel plant.

The memorandum comes within the framework of Enec’s strategy of working with international companies based in countries with established nuclear energy programmes, remarked Enec CEO Engineer Mohamed Al Hammadi after inking the deal with Enusa President José Vicente Berlanga at company headquarters in Abu Dhabi.
It outlines potential areas of collaboration between the two parties, and highlights several key areas of special interest, including the nuclear fuel services and components for the UAE Peaceful Nuclear Energy Programme, he stated.

"Enusa has an excellent track record and decades of experience in the nuclear energy sector and we look forward to collaborating with the organization in the coming months and years ahead," noted Al Hammadi.

"We are committed to developing the UAE Peaceful Nuclear Energy Programme in line with the highest international standards of quality, safety, and security and working with various global organizations enables us to share insights and expertise," stated the Enec chief.

"Such collaboration is important for the future development of the nuclear energy sector within the UAE and internationally," he added.
Berlanga stressed upon the strategic significance of the agreement, as Enusa is also representing the interests of the Spanish Administration.

He also highlighted the group’s desire to seek opportunities for mutual co-operation with Emirati nuclear energy firm, and serve as a point of contact for other Spanish companies or institutions of interest for Enec and the wider UAE Peaceful Nuclear Energy Programme.-TradeArabia News Service
