Abu Dhabi, UAE – 4 July 2018: The Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation (ENEC) today hosted a Knowledge Sharing Forum in Abu Dhabi City. The forum brought together more than 300 delegates representing a diverse range of Abu Dhabi governmental, semi-governmental entities and entities from outside the UAE to learn about the best practices used to develop, manage and implement the UAE Peaceful Nuclear Energy Program, and how these can be applied to other sectors.
The forum is an integral component of ENEC's ongoing efforts to support the UAE's transition to a knowledge-based economy by engaging with local stakeholders, driving growth, and setting new standards of excellence. The nuclear energy industry has some of the most stringent quality, technical and risk management standards in the world and ENEC is committed to sharing its experiences in implementing and maintaining these standards with other national stakeholders and entities.
ENEC Chief Executive Officer, Eng. Mohamed Al Hammadi, said: “The UAE Peaceful Nuclear Energy Program will power the growth of the nation with clean, efficient and reliable nuclear energy, and its development is already supporting many strategic sectors through the enhancement of local businesses, the development of new industries and the creation of high-value jobs.
“As a new organization within this global industry, we continuously strive to meet and exceed the highest international standards of safety, security, and efficiency. Our pursuit of excellence and adherence to these high standards is what enables us to achieve our strategic goals and objectives, and we are committed to sharing our experience and expertise with our national stakeholders so that they too may benefit from our experience. By sharing what we have learned with other entities, we hope to support the continuous improvement of standards across Abu Dhabi Emirate and the wider UAE.”
