Egypt applies for construction permits for Dabaa nuclear plant
Egypt applies for construction permits for Dabaa nuclear plant: Egypt's Nuclear Power Plants Authority has submitted licensing documentation for the first two units of Dabaa nuclear power plant to regulators in what should be the final bureaucratic hurdle to clear before construction is allowed to get going on the project, Rosatom said in a statement. A “full-scale construction” will commence on the USD 30 bn plant once the permit has been granted.
