The Barakah nuclear energy plant, located in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, comprises four APR1400 units, and until recently, was once the largest nuclear plant under construction globally. Today, it is now the first operating nuclear plant in the Arab World, with Unit 1 supplying thousands of megawatts of emissions-free electricity to the UAE grid, a second unit preparing for grid connection, and two remaining units in the final stages of commissioning.

He will highlight the importance of a strong governance framework coupled with disciplined stakeholder management in order to successfully deliver power to the UAE grid.
