ENEC Achieves Historic Milestone in Construction of Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant
 
  • ENEC celebrates the completion of main concrete works and heavy equipment lifting at Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant 
  • More than 2.3 million  cubic meters of concrete poured and approximately 250,000 metric tons of rebar installed at Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant
Abu Dhabi, UAE – 14 October 2018:  The Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation (ENEC) has celebrated the achievement of a historic milestone in the development of the Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant, with the completion of all main concrete works and heavy equipment lifting for the four nuclear reactor units being built in the Al Dhafra Region of Abu Dhabi. 
 
Senior leaders and employees of ENEC, together with the Prime Contractor and Joint Venture partner, the Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO), and their subsidiaries, the Nawah Energy Company and Barakah One Company, celebrated the achievement during a ceremony at the Barakah plant.
 
The completion of main concrete works and heavy equipment lifting at the Barakah plant is a significant milestone in the development of the UAE Peaceful Nuclear Energy Program and the delivery of clean and reliable electricity to the UAE grid. Construction of the Barakah plant began in July 2012 and the overall construction progress for the four Units is now more than 90 percent.
 
“These achievements highlight the significant progress being made at the Barakah plant and mark the beginning of the end of construction activities as the final Units of the plant transition to the testing and commissioning phase,” said Eng. Mohamed Al Hammadi, Chief Executive Officer of ENEC. “We are proud to have maintained our track record of safety and efficiency throughout the construction of all four Units, and have established Barakah as the benchmark for new nuclear construction projects worldwide.”
 
“These milestones are the result of the exceptional partnership between ENEC and its Prime Contractor and Joint Venture partner KEPCO with the dedication and expertise of our UAE Nationals and international experts,” added Eng. Al Hammadi.
 
During this period, over 2.3 million cubic meters of concrete was poured, and approximately 250,000 metric tons of reinforcing steel was installed by construction crews, setting an international construction performance record. The last major structural concrete pour at the Barakah plant was Fuel Handling Area Roof of Unit 4, the final Unit of the Barakah plant. 
 
Other recent milestones completed safely and successfully include Unit 2 Cold Hydrostatic Testing (CHT) and Hot Functional Testing, the completion of Unit 4’s Reactor Containment Building (RCB) dome and Reactor Coolant Loop (RCL) pipe welding, and the completion of all major construction work on Unit 3’s Turbine Generator and Reactor Pressure Vessel (RPV) Internals. 
 
ENEC is responsible for one of the world’s largest new nuclear construction sites, with four Units under development simultaneously. The construction of Unit 1 was completed earlier this year, in accordance with the highest global standards of quality and safety. As of the end of September 2018, Unit 2 construction completion percentage is now more than 94%, Unit 3 is more than 86%, Unit 4 is more than 77%.
 
All four units will deliver clean, reliable and efficient electricity to the UAE grid, and prevent the release of more than 21 million tons of greenhouse gas emission every year.
