UAE becomes first Arab nation to produce nuclear energy

The Barakah nuclear power plant in Abu Dhabi reaches a major milestone with one of the reactors now switched on

The UAE is the first Arab country to produce nuclear energy, after it was announced on Saturday that Unit 1 of the Abu Dhabi-based Barakah nuclear power plant is now operational.

Commercial operations of the reactor are expected to begin later this year, and will help power businesses and homes across the nation using clean energy.

Unit 1 is now using nuclear fuel to produce energy as part of the ‘criticality’ phase that was initiated on Friday. The reactor will be connected to the power grid and provide electricity during the upcoming testing phase.

President Sheikh Khalifa led congratulatory messages saying he was proud of the Emiratis involved.

"We are proud of this achievement and confident in the abilities of our young scientists...It is one of the inspiring moments we live today that will be remembered with great pride by generations to come," he said.
