Steam Generators Installed at Barakah Nuclear Power Project

Emirates Nuclear Energy Corp. completes installation of steam generators at Barakah nuclear power project in UAE

The Emirates Nuclear Energy Corp. (ENEC) completed the installation of steam generators at the planned 1,400-MW Unit 2 of the Barakah nuclear power project in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Doosan Heavy Industries manufactured the stainless steel generators in South Korea over a four-year time period. Doosan Heavy Industries is part of the Korea Prime Contractor consortium for the Barakah project.
In a pressurized water reactor power plant, the steam generator acts as a heat exchanger where the water carrying heat generated from the nuclear reaction is used to turn demineralized water into steam. It helps keep the water in the reactor and the water in the turbine separated. Further piping connection work will be performed to connect the steam generators to the Unit 2 reactor vessel, turbine generators and condenser.
The 1,400-MW Barakah Unit 1 is now 75 percent complete and Unit 2 is 53 percent finished. Overall construction on all four units is 50 percent complete. Unit 1 is scheduled for completion in 2017, which each reactor coming online in 12-month intervals.
