The Emirates Nuclear Technology Center (ENTC) is designed to provide a hub to address the present and future research requirements to support the UAE’s nuclear power program and deliver our key stakeholder’s goals for the delivery of safe, clean and efficient nuclear energy to meet the UAE’s 2030/2050 visions, while protecting the public, workers and the environment. Safe operation and management of nuclear power is based on the highest standards of engineering design, construction, operation, and waste mitigation and the Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation (ENEC) is presently building four 1,400 MWe nuclear power plants to meet the industry’s highest standards, which will be overseen and safeguarded by the Federal Authority of Nuclear Regulation (FANR); ENEC and FANR being the ENTC’s key stakeholders.
The ENTC’s mission is to conduct research in the main thematic areas of nuclear technology necessary to provide a risk informed decision basis for the safe operation of the nuclear power plants, while estimating the consequences should faults occur. Our research in the main thematic areas of Nuclear Safety and Systems, Nuclear Materials/Chemistry and Radiation Safety in the Environment will provide data for informed decision while innovation in methodology and practices will aim to minimize the risks of faults. We will aim to provide the UAE with branded products to be a leader in future nuclear technology.
