Nuclear Power Plants Authority (NPPA) of Egypt handed over the licensing documentation for Units 1 and 2 of El Dabaa NPP construction to Egyptian Nuclear and Radiological Regulation Authority (ENRRA). This marked an important milestone in the implementation of El Dabaa NPP Project in the path forward to issue the construction permit for first two units. Once the permit is obtained Parties will be able to start full-scale construction.
“Since the launch of the Egyptian nuclear project under the auspices of the political leadership, we have spared no effort in implementing the successive commitments related to the project development. The event was preceded by joint extensive work of NPPA and ASE (engineering division of Rosatom) for finalizing the licensing documentation. Today, we are proud of the completion of this work with the highest quality standards, fulfilling local and international requirements”, said Dr. Amged El-Wakeel, Board Chairman of NPPA.
“Thanks to the coordinated efforts of Russian and Egyptian teams, a challenging task of documentation agreement was promptly accomplished, taking into account technical requirements of the EPC Contract and adaptation to the site conditions”, noted Dr. Grigory Sosnin, Vice President - Director of El-Dabaa NPP Construction Project of JSC ASE.
