Nawah Energy Company is the newest nuclear energy plant operator in the global nuclear industry. In 2016, we embarked on a remarkable journey to deliver the vision of the UAE’s Peaceful Nuclear Energy Program by generating safe, reliable, efficient and clean electricity from nuclear energy. Our purpose is to contribute to the UAE’s growth, development and enhancement of quality of life for generations to come.
Nawah will operate four nuclear reactors (Units 1 - 4) at Barakah Nuclear Power Plant, the first nuclear power plant in the UAE and the region, located in the Al Dhafra Region, Abu Dhabi. With safety as our overriding priority, we will supply 25% of the nation’s electricity requirements from 2020 onwards and reduce the country’s carbon dioxide emissions by 12 million tons annually.
As the world’s newest nuclear energy plant operator, we understand that to achieve our goals, we must adhere to the highest international standards for safety and quality in the nuclear industry, in-line with the expectations of our Board, our regulator, FANR, and the wider nuclear industry.
To this end, we have enshrined standards within our company which govern all that we do. These standards, known as The Nawah Way, underpin our governance, oversight, support and performance systems, which guide our everyday activities as well as our long-term strategies. While our world-class governance system establishes controls, our robust oversight mechanism identifies existing and potential gaps, the support system ensures that we act as one team and our performance perimeters in place ensure we perform to the best of our abilities.
In parallel, and with the valuable support of our international nuclear experts, we are committed to developing UAE nationals who will be the future operators of our plant. Nawah is proud to be a multinational, multicultural and Emirati-led company.
Together, with my colleagues, I am proud of the milestones we have already achieved throughout our journey thus far, as well as the steady progress Nawah has made.
With the support of our Chairman, our Board of Directors and our Stakeholders, I look forward to the exciting future we have ahead of us, as we work together to drive the UAE’s Peaceful Nuclear Energy Program forward and firmly establish Nawah as a world-class nuclear plant operator.Mohammed Sahoo AlSuwaidi
