A focused organization

Following inception in 2009, the Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation (ENEC) was mandated by the UAE Government to deliver the UAE Peaceful Nuclear Energy Program, and develop the cornerstone of the UAE Program; the Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant - the first nuclear new build project in the Arab World. Together, as we work closely with the UAE Government, Team Korea and several local, regional and international stakeholders, we are delivering the UAE Peaceful Nuclear Energy Program to ensure that we will not only support the diversification of the UAE’s energy portfolio, providing clean electricity to meet the UAE’s domestic energy demands for decades to come, but we will also support the nation’s efforts towards sustainable economic growth and environmental protection.


To ensure we deliver each and every component of the UAE Nuclear Energy Program in a strategic, systematic manner, ENEC and its joint venture subsidiaries Nawah Energy Company (Nawah)  have developed the ENEC Enterprise Strategy 2020-2024, that is focused on meeting our strategic themes:


  1. Efficient generation of safe, reliable and clean energy from all 4 Units safely and on schedule
  2. Effective UAE nuclear sector value chain that secures timely, cost efficient and high quality products and services
  3. Developing our nuclear energy professionals and supporting our Emiratization program
  4. Embedding a unique nuclear operating culture, that enables a high performing multi-cultural team that lives our AT SITE values


The strategy aligns with our ‘AT SITE’ values of Accountability, Teamwork, Safety, Integrity, Trust and Excellence. All our employees have the values and behaviors to build on our existing culture, creating a way of working that prioritizes safety, and are relevant, respected and understood by our Emirati talent and multinational experts.
