UAE’s Barakah nuclear power plant starts up third unit – The National

The UAE's nuclear power plant marked a “major milestone” on Thursday as the third of its four units was switched on.

An operating licence for the third unit of the Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant was issued in June.

The Federal Authority for Nuclear Regulation (FANR), the UAE’s independent nuclear regulator, said the operating licence was granted to Nawah Energy Company, the Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation’s subsidiary responsible for the operation of the nuclear power plant.
