Egyptian Minister of Electricity Mohamed Shaker said that the main contract for the plant and the contract for supplying the nuclear fuel have already been signed with the Russian company Rosatom، adding that the contracts for the technical training and establishment will be signed within two months.
He explained that the nuclear power plant is one of the ministry’s main objectives to diversify energy sources and promote peaceful use of nuclear energy.
The Dabaa nuclear power plant will be composed of four units with a total capacity of 4،800MW.
Shaker said that Dabaa plant will not produce any gas emissions pollutants or greenhouse gases، and that it will have the highest global safety rates used to generate electricity in nuclear power stations.
He added that the project provides a number of social، economic، and cultural advantages، including that it will provide 10،000 new jobs for the youth of Marsa Matrouh during the eight-year construction period، as well as at least 4،000 other jobs after operation begins.
