The board is mandated to govern the performance of Nawah Energy Company and is responsible for holding the Nawah CEO and leadership team accountable for the company’s performance to the highest nuclear safety standards and for operating and maintaining the Barakah Nuclear Power Plant (BNPP) safely, reliably and efficiently, said a statement.
The General Assembly has also completed the appointment of the members of the Nawah board.
The board was chaired by Saeed Fadhel Al Mazrooei and was joined by David Scott as vice chairman and board members Mohamed Al Hammadi, Ahmed Mohamed Al Rumaithi, Fatima Mohamed Al Shamsi, Ahmed Matar Al Mazrouei, and Dr Arif Sultan Al Hammadi. It was also attended, under the joint venture agreement, by Jong Hyuck Park and Jong Hun Tae as representatives of Kepco.
“I am pleased to be taking part in this world class nuclear program at such an exciting time. Nawah has been mandated to operate and maintain Units 1 – 4 at the Barakah Nuclear Power Plant to provide the UAE with a safe, reliable and sustainable source of low-carbon electricity to power the growth of the nation,” stated Saeed Al Mazrouei.
He continued: “Once fully operational, these four reactors will generate up to 25 per cent of the UAE’s electricity requirements. By utilising nuclear energy to generate electricity, the 5,300 MW plant will save millions of tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually, contributing to sustainability and environmental protection.”
