Review into Braka nuclear facility ordered
Review of lessons from Japan disaster ordered for planned atomic plant
The Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation has been asked to provide a plan, detailing how it will apply lessons learned from Japan’s Fukushima nuclear accident to its own atomic ambitions, the Emirates News Agency has said.
In a letter sent to the company, the Federal Authority for Nuclear Regulation has requested a full description of plans to review the disaster, and include any lessons learned in terms of the design, siting and operation of the proposed Braka nuclear facility.
FANR director General DR William D Travers said: “We understand the ENEC has been following developments since the tsunami struck Japan, and is considering whether there are any implications for their planned units.”
He continued: “We are also evaluating these developments to see if FANR’s existing requirements should be enhanced.
