The Emirates Nuclear Energy Corp. (ENEC) installed a second APR-1400 nuclear reactor training simulator at its learning center in Abu Dhabi.
 
The 20-metric-ton simulator was built and tested by Korea Electric Power Corp. (KEPCO) in Korea, then taken apart and shipped to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) where it was reassembled and put through a second round of tests. ENEC also said the first simulator was fully updated to make it more specific to the environment of the 5.6-GW Barakah Nuclear Power Plant. Unit 1 is 74 percent complete and is scheduled to be finished by 2017. Unit 2 is 51 percent finished. The remaining three units  will come online in 12-month intervals.
 
The training center is a 7,000-square-meter facility with classrooms, training equipment and the latest interactive digital workshops for students.
