UAE nuclear operator signs MOU to develop off-site emergency response plans

The National Emergency Crisis Management Authority (NECMA) and the Emirates Nuclear Energy Corp. (ENEC) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) for the development of off-site emergency response plans for the Barakah nuclear power plant in the western region of Abu Dhabi.

“The Memorandum of Understanding is just one feature which will help to ensure that the Barakah nuclear power plant adheres to the highest standards in safety,” said Mohamed Khalfan Matar Al Romaithi, general manager of NECMA.

NCEMA is responsible for managing local and national crises, emergencies and disasters by coordinating efforts by relevant parties.

In July, ENEC officially started construction of the UAE’s first nuclear energy plant, by pouring the first nuclear safety concrete for the Barakah Unit.
