Une entreprise russe entame la construction de la première centrale nucléaire égyptienne
Egyptian Minister of Electricity and Renewable Energy Mohamed Shaker and Rosatom CEO Alexey Likhachev announced the start of the “first concrete cast” for the first unit of the Dabaa nuclear power plant during a ceremony held specifically to celebrate the historic occasion.
During the July 20 ceremony, Likhachev said that the construction of a nuclear power plant will allow Egypt to reach a new level of technology development, industry and education.
“The start of construction of the first power unit for the Dabaa nuclear power plant means Egypt will step into the global nuclear club. Rosatom will build the latest power units in the Arab Republic according to the ‘VVR-1200’ design,” Likhachev said.
He noted, “The construction of a nuclear power plant will allow Egypt to reach a new level of technology development, industry and education. This will be the largest project of Russian-Egyptian cooperation since the construction of the Aswan Dam.”
He continued, “Nuclear energy has been a dream of the Egyptian people for more than half a century, and it is a great honor for Rosatom to make it come true.” READ MORE
