UAE becomes first country in Arab World to produce nuclear energy

@BBC
As the Barakah Nuclear Plant's 1st Unit got operational on Friday, UAE became the first country in the Arab World to produce nuclear energy.

The new plant is part of the UAE's graph  to become less reliant on oil and gas, the current source of the vast majority of its energy. UAE is among the world's biggest fossil fuels producers.

Barakah plant situated  in the Al Dhafrah region of Abu Dhabi started producing heat on Saturday, the Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation said in a statement. The plant, powered by South Korean technology , hopes to produce 5.6 gigawatts of electricity and supply up to 25% of the UAE's electricity needs, the corporation said.

President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan said this milestone, which comes a few days after the launch of the Hope Probe, confirms that UAE guided by Emirati cadres - is steadily progressing ahead with well-weighed plans towards building a robust knowledge base in all fields.
