Doosan Heavy Industries to provide maintenance services for the Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant

24 June 2019 – Abu Dhabi, UAE: Nawah Energy Company (Nawah), the subsidiary created by Joint Venture partners Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation (ENEC) and Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO) to operate and maintain the Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant, has signed a Maintenance Service Agreement (MSA) with Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction (DHIC), a subsidiary of the Doosan Group, for the Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant.

Under the agreement, DHIC will provide Nawah with a range of maintenance services and qualified manpower to support routine and outage maintenance activities across the four 1400 MW APR1400 Units at the Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant, located in the Al Dhafra region of Abu Dhabi Emirate.

Working in partnership with leading international companies such as DHIC reinforces the services and sources of qualified maintenance experts available to Nawah – supporting the quality and safety-led maintenance work at the Barakah Plant that, as the future holder of the Operating License from the Federal Authority for Nuclear Regulation (FANR), Nawah will be responsible for delivering.

DHIC is a South Korean company with more than five decades of experience in delivering integrated solutions spanning the construction and peaceful nuclear energy industries. It is a significant supplier of major components for the Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant, and has a proven track record of providing safe and reliable maintenance services.

Mark Reddemann, Chief Executive Officer of Nawah, said: “We are delighted to sign this agreement with Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction, reflecting the strong relationship between the UAE and South Korea. DHIC, which has decades of experience in providing high-quality components to the global nuclear industry, is a robust addition to our experienced group of international maintenance service providers, who will support our quality-led operations and maintenance of the Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant.”

Kiyong Na, Chief Executive Officer of Nuclear Power Plant Business Group of DHIC, said: “This agreement will be a stepping stone for close cooperation with Nawah to operate the Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant safely and efficiently. As DHIC has supplied quality nuclear components such as Reactor Vessel, Steam Generator and Turbine & Generators on time and within budget to Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant, we will support Nawah with excellent maintenance technology.”

Jin Won Mok, Chief Executive Officer of Power Service Business Group of DHIC, said: “The Doosan team has been working in support of the Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant project for more than 10 years now, in strong collaboration with our KHNP/KPS colleagues. This MSA contract is very important to Team Doosan and gives us the opportunity to focus our resources and expertise in support of the Barakah plant and we are pleased to see the value Nawah places in the continuing relationship with the wider Doosan team. We will ensure our best efforts are deployed to ensure great success for the years ahead, always focusing on the highest standards of nuclear safety, quality and cost effectiveness and supporting knowledge transfer. All of our reputations rest on the success of Barakah.”

The agreement with DHIC follows Nawah's recent signing of a Long Term Maintenance Services Agreement (LTMSA) with a KHNP consortium supported by KEPCO Plant Service & Engineering (KPS). 

The agreement comes within the framework of ENEC and Nawah's strategy to draw on the expertise of a number of companies based in countries with established and highly-performing nuclear energy programs. A pool of qualified international maintenance suppliers will provide maintenance services to Nawah, while ensuring that Nawah retains leadership of the maintenance work of the Barakah units, in line with the obligations set out in the Operating License.

This strategy provides opportunities for knowledge transfer to build the UAE's local nuclear energy supply chain, and supports the development of national capabilities, as well as ensuring the achievement of the highest standards of quality and safety.
