The session took place at the International Ministerial Conference on Nuclear Power in the 21st Century, being held in Abu Dhabi this week. 

Speaking at the UAE Side Event session entitled “The UAE’s Journey Towards Peaceful Nuclear Energy”, industry leaders displayed how the UAE has benefitted from the  support of and collaboration with the international nuclear energy community in its efforts to develop the UAE Peaceful Nuclear Energy Program. 

The three-day conference has been organized by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s Nuclear Energy Agency (OECD/NEA), and hosted by the UAE Ministry of Energy.

The session included prominent UAE nuclear industry experts including, H.E. Ambassador Hamad Alkaabi, UAE Permanent Representative to the IAEA and President of the Conference, Eng.

The industry leaders gave a brief historical background on the UAE Peaceful Nuclear Energy Program since it was conceived almost 10 years ago with a vision to power the future growth and prosperity of the nation. They also looked back on the release of the UAE’s Policy on the Evaluation and Potential Development of Peaceful Nuclear Energy, which provided the foundation for the UAE’s efforts to develop the program and related infrastructure.

The session discussed the partnership with  IAEA, as well the establishment national  Institutions including  FANR in 2009 as the independent federal regulatory body for the nuclear sector in the UAE, and ENEC later that year as the  developer of the UAE  first  Nuclear Energy Project , supporting energy diversification in the UAE.

Speakers also highlighted cooperating with international experts and industry players as a key part of the development of the Program through the exchange of best practices and knowledge transfer. This has helped ensure sustainability of the Program in line with the highest international standards of safety, quality, security and transparency.

Overall, construction of the four Units is now more than 84 percent complete.
