The KEMIX loan facilities refinancing was supported by Emariti banks Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank PJSC and the First Abu Dhabi Bank following a competitive market process.

The nuclear plant is a major contributor to the country’s 2050 net zero goals. Once its Unit 4 becomes operational, this will bring the plant’s total generation capacity to 5.6 gigawatts which could meet 25% of the UAE’s electricity needs.

It could deliver over 40 terawatt hours of electricity annually.
