UAE becomes first peaceful nuclear operating nation in Arab world


The UAE's Barakah nuclear power plant has hit a new milestone.

The facility in Abu Dhabi’s Al Dhafra region has safely completed loading fuel into the first of four reactors.

It paves the way for the official start of operations at the plant, making the UAE the first peaceful nuclear energy operating nation in the Arab World.

The fuel-load operation was led by a team made up almost entirely of Emirati experts trained in South Korea.

In the next phase, all the systems of Unit 1 will be safely and gradually tested to move into full electricity production.
