Building a local nuclear energy supply chain


The nuclear energy industry has some of the most stringent quality standards in the world.

To support local companies, the ENEC established a dedicated Industrial Development Team to work alongside UAE companies to ensure they meet the strict quality and technical standards required to tender for contracts for the country’s nuclear energy program.

ENEC works with local companies to upgrade their systems to become American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Nuclear Component certified companies, which is the key certification required to become nuclear-approved suppliers.

We have supported many UAE companies to raise their quality standards to meet the requirements of the nuclear industry, allowing Emirati companies the opportunity to contribute to the success of the ENEC program and gain a unique competitive advantage in providing nuclear-quality services and materials to the world.

To date, more than 1400 UAE companies have successfully secured contracts totaling more than US $3 billion for a range of products and services to support the construction of the UAE’s first nuclear energy plants. Contracts with local companies have been awarded over the past four years through joint collaboration between ENEC and KEPCO. The companies include DESCON Engineering, Bin Asheer, National Marine Dredging Company, the Western Bainoona Group, Emirates Steel and Dubai Cable Company Ltd. (Ducab).

We are proud to be supporting local businesses in the UAE, and facilitating the development of a local nuclear energy supply chain.
