“The first megawatt of the first Arab nuclear plant entered the national power grid,” the Federation’s vice president and Prime Minister Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum said on Twitter.

“The beginning of commercial operations at the Barak plant is a historic step for the Emirate, which strengthens the stability of our entire power sector,” said Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan, Abu Dhabi’s head prince and de facto leader of the country. .

Emirates Federation, the fourth producer of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), has developed since the 1970s for its wealth of oil and gas. However, in recent years it has been trying to diversify its energy matrix through billionaire investments.

The Barak plant is located in the territory of Al Gharbia, the municipality of Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates. The idea behind its construction is to create enough renewable energy to cover half of its energy needs by around 2050.
