Tenex, a part of the Russian ROSATOM state corporation company, is a global supplier of uranium products.

The new MoU was signed during the 24th World Energy Congress at ADNEC in Abu Dhabi, by Mohamed Al Hammadi, CEO of ENEC, and Polgorodnik Sergey, director general of Tenex.

The renewal represents an extension of the MoU signed by ENEC and Tenex in 2017, which established a framework for potential future cooperation in the field of innovative nuclear fuel cycle solutions, including the management and disposal of radioactive waste.

A delegation from ENEC made a visit recently to the Mining and Chemical Combine (FSUE) complex in Krasnoyarsk, Russia, organised by TENEX.

?We are delighted to renew this MoU with Tenex as we continue to develop the UAE Peaceful Nuclear Energy Program in line with the highest international standards of quality, safety, and security,? said  Mohamed Al Hammadi.

The renewal of the memorandum comes within the framework of ENEC?s strategy of working with international companies based in countries with established nuclear energy programmes, and cooperating with responsible nations to benefit from the global cumulative experience of the nuclear energy industry.
