Nuke plant progress


THE state company behind the United Arab Emirates' first nuclear power plant says it has received a green light for the project from an environmental regulator in the country.

The Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation called the approval yesterday from the Environment Agency in Abu Dhabi an important step in a multi-year licensing process for the Gulf federation's first two reactors.

ENEC still needs to secure approval from the UAE's federal nuclear regulator before it can move ahead with construction.

The company plans to build the reactors at a coastal site.
