Reactor at Egyptian nuclear power plant authorized for construction

Cairo, Mar 30 (Prensa Latina) The Egyptian Nuclear and Radiological Regulatory Authority announced today that it gave green light to the construction of the third reactor of the Dabaa power plant, which is being built on the Mediterranean coast of this North African country.

A statement from the entity reported on joint meetings with representatives of the Nuclear Power Plants Authority to evaluate the first two units and plan the establishment of the third.

It assured that the latter will pose no threat to humans or the environment.

The Dabaa plant is Egypt’s first nuclear power plant, located some 320 kilometers northwest of this capital.

Designed with Russian technology, the facility will have four VVER-1200 pressurized water nuclear reactors, each with a capacity of 1,200 megawatts.

Construction of its first reactor began in July last year and its second in November.

In December 2017, the presidents of Egypt and Russia, Abdel Fattah El Sisi, and Vladimir Putin, respectively signed an agreement in this capital to start works on the plant at a cost of 28.75 billion dollars.

Russia will finance 85 percent of that total with a loan of 25 billion dollars to be paid over two decades.
