CEO Message

Construction of El Dabaa NPP is the most ambitious energy project not only in Egypt but also on the whole African continent. In terms of its scale and importance for the development of our country it can be compared only with the construction of Aswan High Dam celebrated as the engineering masterpiece and the symbol of Russian-Egyptian cooperation.

Nowadays Russia is the leader on the global nuclear technology market as well as the trustworthy partner capable of providing the full package of services in the area of peaceful atom.

I am sure that safety and ecological compatibility of nuclear technologies, experience and unique competences of Russian specialists who are able to apply and develop cutting-edge solutions as well as potential and diligence of Egyptian people will become the basis of effective evolution of Egypt’s nuclear energy industry for the purposes of prosperity and progress of the country.
