    Note :

    The Scaled Composites accident shows that hybrids are not necessarily safer than liquid fueled rockets. There is also the fact that the combustion chamber has to be replaced after every flight with the SS2 hybrid engine, reducing reusability savings.

    Construction of second UAE nuclear plant begins

    Construction work has begun on the UAE's second nuclear energy plant in the Western Region of Abu Dhabi, with safety concrete poured by the Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation (ENEC). Construction on the plant is expected to last five years, before it enters into commercial operation in 2018, pending regulatory approvals.

    ENEC is constructing a total of four nuclear energy plants in Barakah, and building of the first plant, Unit 1, began last year. ENEC will apply for an operating license for Units 1 and 2 in 2015 and in March submitted the construction license application for Units 3 & 4 to the Federal Authority for Nuclear Regulation (FANR).

    The plants are being built by Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation (ENEC) with Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO) as main contractor.

    To commemorate the construction beginning, ENEC hosted Sang-jick Yoon, Korea's Minister of Trade, Industry and Energy, to celebrate the partnership between the two countries.

    HE Khaldoon Al Mubarak, Chairman of ENEC praised the commitment demonstrated by the Korean Government in the development of the UAE nuclear energy program, thanking Yoon for his government's continued support.

    Also attending the occasion was UAE Minister of State and CEO of Masdar, HE Sultan Al Jaber; HE Mohamed Al Hammadi, chief executive officer of ENEC and senior representatives from KEPCO.

    "We are drawing on the skills and expertise of a world-class nuclear corporation through our prime contractor KEPCO," said H Al Hammadi.

    "One of the key factors of the bidding process to support the UAE's nuclear energy program, along with meeting the highest standards of safety and quality, was the company's ability to provide the resources and capabilities to deliver these key early development stages of the project.

    "KEPCO is meeting our goal of delivering the gold standard of peaceful nuclear energy development and we are very proud of the progress we are making with our partners.

    "With the construction of our second plant now underway, we have reached another important milestone in our mission to bring safe, clean, reliable and efficient nuclear energy to the UAE," said Al Hammadi.

    The first plant is expected to commence operations in 2017, with all four plants operational by 2020.
