tangram’s Emergency Response Centre for Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation was Awarded Middle East Architect’s “Sustainable Project of the Year, 2015”. The scheme was recognized by the judging panel for it’s “simple, yet innovative, fresh and welcoming design.” And as a “project which is of huge importance for the UAE as a nation”.
In a recent press release, Ahmed Al Rumaithi, ENEC Deputy CEO, commented: “The completion of the ERC facility is an important milestone in ENEC’s operational readiness well in advance of when the Barakah plant will commence operations. These facilities were completed on time, and to the highest standards of quality and safety. I am very proud of the work the team has done in order to get to the completion stage.”
The facility was recently commended by the IAEA following its peer review of the UAE’s preparations for emergency response, the Emergency Preparedness Review (EPREV). The IAEA’s EPREV mission, conducted in March this year, praised ENEC’s approach in co-locating the EOC and EOF and found that there was good progress being made in building on the existing national crisis and emergency management structure, for the purposes of the Barakah Nuclear Power Plant.
