The Egyptian Presidential Office is reviewing Dabaa nuclear power plant agreements in preparation for the signing ceremony that will be attended by a number of scientists and leaders.
Governmental officials stated that the Egyptian President, Abdel Fattah El Sisi, received detailed reports regarding the negotiations with Russia’s Rostom to establish Dabaa plant worth $30b in investments, reported Al Borsa.
The presidency office will be in charge of preparing the contracts ad agreements to be signed in the ceremony in the presence of a high delegation from Russia along with the Egyptian scientists and media presenters.
The government officials expect the signature of the contracts to be delayed beyond the December deadline, as the contracts are still under review. Egypt and Russia will sign four contracts for the 4800MW project, including two related to the construction and design of the plant, another for fuel supply, and finally a contract for training services.
The Minister of Electricity and Renewable Energy, Mohamed Shaker, stated that Egypt agreed with the Russian partner to start a media campaign for the plant in April 2017 and to start training 1711 employee to work in Dabaa power plant. Furthermore, thirty Egyptian opinion leaders will be sent to Russia to understand more about the working mechanisms used in nuclear power plants and the required safety operations.
