ENEC Strengthens UAE-France Cooperation in Nuclear Energy Sector Through New E-Fusion 2022
Abu Dhabi, UAE – 20 September 2022: The Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation (ENEC) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with CSFN (French Nuclear Cluster) at the fifth edition of E-Fusion. The event brings together the UAE and French nuclear sectors to further develop and strengthen their collaboration to support the development of the global nuclear supply chain. E-Fusion is organized by ENEC in partnership with Business France, the national agency supporting the international development of the French economy and CSFN.
ENEC and CSFN’s new MoU will focus on future enhancement of a local supply chain for the UAE Peaceful Nuclear Energy Program and the Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant, increase local manufacturing and supply of components and equipment and enable greater sharing of knowledge, skills and expertise.
“France is a leader in the field of nuclear energy and the UAE has been considerably expanding its capacities in this field. E-Fusion is a very important initiative in this regard. French know-how and expertise are recognized worldwide, and the importance of the French delegation of firms traveling from France to this event is another clear demonstration of the growing potential between our two countries,” His Excellency Xavier Chatel, French Ambassador to the UAE said.
