Operational Safety


As we near operations, ENEC has invested hundreds of thousands of man-hours in documenting the safety of the planned operations and maintenance of the Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant, and its adherence to the highest standards of safety, quality and security.

As part of this work, ENEC filed the Operating License Application (OLA) for Barakah Units 1 and 2 with FANR, the UAE regulatory authority, in March 2015.

Another critical part of our safety culture and ongoing work toward operational readiness is simulation training. The Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant is now home to two of the world’s most advanced, full scope, digital training simulators, which are housed in the 7,000-square-meter Simulator Training Center. Individuals who are working toward their certification to operate the Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant gain hands-on experience by interfacing with one of two exact replicas of the Main Control Room. Trainees are exposed to a series of virtual scenarios that prepare them to play a key role in delivering safe, clean nuclear energy to the UAE.

We have completed more than 20 emergency response drills and will continue to conduct these exercises at regular intervals during construction and operations of the plant.

Safety is a defining element of our corporate values and culture.
