The Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant is one of the most modern nuclear energy facilities in the world. It features multiple, state-of-the-art safety systems that are designed to keep the plant safe, and prevent the release of radioactive materials, even in the most extreme circumstances.
Safety is our number one priority, and the operation of the Barakah plant is highly regulated by the UAE’s independent nuclear regulator, the Federal Authority for Nuclear Regulation (FANR). Our safety standards meet all national regulatory and international standards, and our emergency arrangements are rigorously planned and rehearsed.
In the highly unlikely event of an emergency at the Barakah plant, we aim to protect:
- The people and communities around the plant
- Our people working at the plant
- The environment around us
- Those managing the plant and returning it to a safe condition
In the extremely unlikely circumstances of a release of radiation at the plant, there are a number of simple actions that all members of the public should follow.
