Permits to construct the Dabaa reactors in Egypt to be issued in 2H2021

Permits for building of Dabaa reactors coming in 2H2021: The Nuclear and Radiological Regulatory Authority (ENRRA) expects to issue the construction permit for the reactors of the Dabaa nuclear power plant during the second half of 2021, Nuclear Power Plants (NPPA) Authority boss Amgad El Wekeel told Youm7. Rosatom’s Atomstroyexport (ASE), the project’s main contractor, was previously set to break ground on the reactors around the second half of this year, with the first 1.2 GW nuclear reactor slated to begin operations in 2026. The delay in issuing the permit, which the NPPA needs to acquire from ENRRA, won’t affect other works at the site such as landscaping and setting up support buildings, El Wekeel said.
