Angad al-Wakil, head of the Egyptian Atomic Energy Authority, said that by 2030, the Daba nuclear plant will be operating at a full capacity of 4,800 megawatts.
Al-Wakil added in a statement to “Youm7” that the first nuclear reactor with a capacity of 1,200 megawatts will generate electricity according to the commercial plan schedule for 2020, noting that the rest of the reactors will continue to operate. Will be operational at full capacity by 2030.
The head of the Atomic Energy Authority said the authority was committed to the timeline for the implementation of a 4,800-megawatt nuclear power plant in El-Daba in collaboration with the Russian company Rosata. Construction of the plant indicated that all project workers were making rapid progress to complete the plant on time.
He emphasized that the four reactors at the El-Daba nuclear power plant would be similar to the “VVER 1200” generation 3+ reactors, equipped with the latest safety features, with added safety standards and a safety standard. Unprecedented ability to withstand major accidents and be able to withstand a collision with an aircraft of its own weight. 400 tons, speed of 150 meters per second. These types of nuclear reactors are characterized by safe operation without adversely affecting the surrounding environment. These reactors ensure that radiation does not leak through filters and multiple interruptions and are equipped with a modern automatic control system.
