The Ministry of Electricity and Energy (MOEE) announced that it has signed a cooperation protocol with the Egyptian Army Corps of Engineers to implement Egypt’s first electricity-generating nuclear plant.

The signed protocol stipulates that the corps work on rehabilitating the Dabaa site, located in the Matruh governorate, and the project’s infrastructure, which will include an administrative building, storage units, several workshop stations, the site’s garage, laboratories and water and electricity utilities.

The MOEE said in an official statement that it has provided the necessary financial resources to begin the implementation process and follow through with the timely schedule. It added that the project will cost around EGP 13m and will be implemented over a period of four months, starting from the date of the engineering corps is provided with the building site.

MOEE spokesman Aktham Abouelela told the Daily News Egypt that the building site will be turned over to the engineering corps in a week.

Minister of Electricity and Energy Ahmed Emam pointed out that the ministry assigned the project to the Army Corps of Engineers due to its capability and expertise in the area of infrastructure and its willingness to actively participate in construction and development plans.

Abouelela said that a bid has not been made for the implementation of the infrastructure.
