The first nuclear power plant begins to operate in the Arab world: threats to a power plant


In the UAE, permission was issued to launch the first power unit of Baraka NPP. But this joyful event for the Emirates makes one think about the safety of a nuclear power plant. Indeed, the military-political situation on the Arabian Peninsula is now very difficult.


The opening of a power station on the Persian Gulf coast, the crown prince of Abu Dhabi, Muhammad bin Zayed, who attended the ceremony, called a new stage on the path to the peaceful uses of atomic energy. Baraka NPP is the first nuclear power plant in the Arab world. The launch of the first power unit opens up the prospect of commercial use of the nuclear power plant, and the second power unit will soon be launched. He is 95% ready.

The Baraka NPP has been under construction by the Korean Electric Company for over 10 years. Work began in 2009, and their cost is currently $ 24 billion. In total, 4 power units are to be built, each of which has a capacity of 1400 MW. In the UAE, it is hoped that over the next 50-60 years, a nuclear power plant will provide the country with electricity, and in addition will allow it to be exported, which will also benefit the Emirates. The license for the operation of nuclear power plants was obtained by Nawah Energy Company.

Meanwhile, in the southwest of the Arabian Peninsula, in Yemen, a civil war continues. Hussite rebels are fighting with their opponents and the Arab coalition troops that came to their aid, in which the main role is played by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. The Husites of the UAE are perceived as a clear enemy, but not only on Yemeni land are they going to confront him.

Of course, the first thing the Hussites attack is objects in Saudi Arabia. Most often, unmanned aerial vehicles are used for attacks. So, on June 12, 2019, the Hussites attacked the airport in the Saudi city of Abha, exposing it to rocket fire. The shell hit the arrival hall, as a result of which 25 people were injured. On September 14, 2019, the Hussites attacked the largest oil facility in Saudi Arabia, which temporarily led to a reduction in KSA oil production by half. And these are far from the only examples of Hussite attacks on Saudi sites.

Unlike Saudi Arabia, the UAE is located at a greater distance from Yemen and do not have borders with it. But this does not mean that the Hussites are not able to attack objects in the territory of the Emirates. Moreover, they threatened more than once with blows to the oil facilities of the UAE, as well as to the Baraka nuclear power plant itself. In 2017, the Hussites disseminated information about the attack on the power plant under construction, but then in Abu Dhabi the fact of an attack on nuclear power plants was denied.

Now, after the grand opening of the nuclear power plant, its attractiveness as a target for a strike has only increased. The Hussites understand that even the threat of an attack against a nuclear power plant looks daunting, since strikes can lead to an accident at a nuclear power plant and to a real catastrophe throughout the entire small state of the UAE. Moreover, the nuclear power plant is located just 250 km from the capital of Abu Dhabi. So the launch of a nuclear power plant adds problems to the leadership of the UAE, which now will have to worry about the safety of the new facility.

Much now depends on the effectiveness of air defense, both the Emirates and neighboring Saudi Arabia. The UAE, like Saudi Arabia, is one of the largest arms importers in the world. And they are buying in the UAE weapon, produced in the USA, and in the European Union, and in Russia. For example, 50 Russian Pantsir-C1 air defense missile systems are already in service with the air defense forces.

In addition to the Pantsir-C1, UAE air defense systems are armed with 7 batteries of the American Advanced Hawk air defense system, 9 Patriot RAS3 batteries, 9 French-made Krotal air defense systems, 12 British-made Rapira air defense systems, 63 air defense systems (including 40 Igla-S, 10 Igla-1, 13 Swedish-made RBS-70) and even 2 THAAD missile defense batteries.

Given the relevance of the threats from the Hussites and the need to protect their territory, the UAE will only increase the potential of its air defense. In this regard, it is interesting that both the UAE and Saudi Arabia are showing increasing attention to the latest Russian air defense systems, which are considered one of the best in the world.

    Husites recently shot down a German Tornado ... just marvel at their capabilities.
    It would seem almost a partisan formation ... but no, they put such a pig in it, you scratch your turnip with surprise.
    What can I say about the UAE NPP ... rates went to a completely different level ... however. what

      Pffff ... this almost partisan formation It was noted by launches of tactical missiles at the bases of the Coalition and anti-ship missiles on the vessel of the Coalition. smile
      There are "partisans" - only for pictures in the media. And the main work is done by the part of the army of Yemen that remains loyal to the old president.

          Well, God forbid ... happiness to them.
          Although there is no reason for the Hussites to attack this object ... purely because of the consequences ... they themselves may suffer.
          NPPs are considered the most protected objects ... but how the defense of the Saudi oil depot was broken ... who knows what ... the slovenliness of the Arabs is unpredictable.

            Unfortunately, not all nuclear power plants are designed for a missile strike at power units, but this is clearly not the case.
            The most amazing thing is that the Koreans included in their project a number of technical solutions that are absent from competitors and can increase the safety of the unit. Among them, the publication notes missile shield, which will allow the block to withstand missile attacks both outside and inside the block. Designers have also taken additional measures to strengthen the earthquake resistance of their offspring.

              Good day! Unfortunately your link does not open, but I suspect that this is from the category of news, reprinted / translated from Western sources. Unfortunately, as in the joke about Petka and Chapaev "... and then I hit the map ..." it’s not always worth taking the word "gentlemen", very often the declaration of steepness and the benefits of their successes, aspirations and design decisions is much higher by orders of magnitude. This bl .... is successfully adopted by our large companies, where in each office a variety of pieces of paper hanging in frames under glass contain a lot of smart words, but very often they are a declaration of pure thoughts and aspirations that impress the profane, worthless and penniless. And a cloud of people engaged in this crap, who do not have a technical education or have somewhere a very rough idea of ​​real work. Sustainable phrases such as “quality goals”, “quality management standards” and a bunch of other verbiage simply rolls over. Glad for those whom this shit did not affect))).

                  Thank you, as I thought at least specifics, there are even small drawings / photos, but just as the Japanese believed in their stations, even UAE citizens believe in the unsurpassed protective structures of their nuclear power plant. I was only interested in the forum, and even then there is no time for it yet.

          Is this called thinking ?? And what about the heap did not buy Norway and South Africa? Where is the logic here ?!
          It can be seen that there is corruption with kickbacks. And we all “run into the Hindus” that the gypsies buy without thinking. Exchange all this vinigret for SAMP-T British-French, or purchase everything from Israel. They have peace with them. With thoughtful echelons.

            Arabs, by tradition, do not think about a protracted war - therefore, they do not care about the unitarity of weapons, they have only one thought - brush off once, and then paid strong dudes from the gateway will destroy everything .. an approximate strategy of the Arab General Staffs ....

          at Oaashnikov with a thought like everything is in order
          That is why they are dumped from Yemen.
          Abu Dhabi, February 9, 2020 (source: Emirates News Agency). After five years of military presence in Yemen, the troops of the United Arab Emirates returned home, where on Sunday a national holiday was held in their honor. The decision to withdraw troops was taken by the UAE leadership after the liberation of the city of Al-Mukalla from the militants of al-Qaeda and ISIS.

          UAE troops have been in Yemen since 2015 as part of the anti-Husite Arab coalition led by Saudi Arabia. The purpose of the coalition was to support the legitimate authorities in Yemen and ensure stability in the country and region.

It’s just that now everything is controlled by profit .. and they are reasoning like this - after me at least a flood ..

        So the construction of nuclear power plants comes from the Russian budget. The same use of money as in the Russian Federation only on a foreign territory. Nobody is interested in “profit” there. For when it appears, all the masters have already left this sinful world.

            They built Aswan - they bought allies. Advertised the Soviet way of life. The current ones do not advertise anything - they prepare a little bag for the great-grandchildren. Kiriyenko has become a dollar billionaire in Rosatom for 10 years. How many billionaires did you know in the USSR?

        This is the whole snag, okay, even if the profit was sane, but even it’s plainly not visible, as the very prospects of exploitation are foggy. Building a nuclear power plant in exchange for friendship is initially a so-so strategy.

    By the way, can anyone explain, as I understand it, the company was building the South Korean company, where did their nuclear technology come from?

      From North Korea. M. Khazin once put forward the theory that North Korea is developing nuclear technology with the money of South Korea. This was explained by the fact that North Korea will develop them, share it with the South and they will both throw off the yoke of the Americans from the neck and all will be happy.

            Once a nuclear power plant is being built, it means that there is not enough capacity.
            Once they build nuclear power plants, not solar ones, it means they do not fully satisfy
            Can you imagine the difference in the construction of nuclear power plants and the construction of solar fields. Dig 1000 columns surrounded by a netting or to ward off a system of buildings with 3-5 meter walls?
            It is clear that the first is much cheaper, but no, they are building a nuclear power plant ...

              we are building an akku to the Turks, while they are falling into solar and wind energy and they are not forgetting hydroelectric power stations. By the way, last year they produced a double increase in hydroelectric power stations in comparison with 2018. Is that why they bought less gas from us.

    Soon, only countries capable of using their geopolitical influence to ensure peace in the country of construction will build nuclear power plants ... this is an assumption, but high-quality air defense systems for ensuring the safety of nuclear power plants are really needed right now. I won’t be surprised if we are waiting for a contract between South Korea and the SA for air defense systems. I think that Russia was linked to Turkey.

    No drone with any amount of explosive can ever damage a nuclear reactor. Even a crashed plane the size of a Boeing 767 will do nothing. I will not name the thickness of the walls of a power unit made of MONOLITHIC reinforced concrete, but it is poured oooh for a very long time and continuously, and the thickness is not one and not two meters.
    I don’t know how in the UAE, but for an armed attack on our nuclear power plant, at least a battalion of trained infantry with reinforcements in the form of heavy artillery and armored vehicles will be required. And this is just to lead the battle and not be smeared by soldiers from the territory of the nuclear power plant.
    And in an hour on the turntables the "Budyonny cavalry" will arrive in the form of army special forces ... (we have it).

        BNPP - Balakovo Nuclear Power Plant
        The task of protection assigned to the military separate battalion of the Internal Troops of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia, almost a quarter century serving as a kind of shield BAEC.
        Safety on Russian nuclear power plants, which are guarded by military units of the Internal Troops, provided much better than in most countries of the world. It is no coincidence that many want to adopt our experience in the anti-terrorism safety of nuclear power plants. Including the above-mentioned leading countries in the field of nuclear energy. So we can, if we want?

            On August 19, 1981, a closed meeting of the USSR Council of Ministers and the Politburo of the CPSU Central Committee was held, at which a decision was made the creation of a top-secret special forces detachment for operations outside the USSR. The squad was called Pennant.

Out of several hundred people, about fifty employees switched to the service in the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation, the rest remained in the bodies of the RF GUO, switched to work in the FSB of the Russian Federation, other state bodies or left the service.

            Other commandos left for the foreign intelligence service, helped to take the Russians out of Africa’s hot spots, others in the Ministry of Emergency Situations. Some of the employees later transferred to the created Special Operations Directorate of the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation (now the Central Security Service of the Federal Security Service).

            On August 28, 1995, Vega was transferred to the FSB of the Russian Federation by presidential decree.

            In October 1995, Office “V” was created on the basis of the Anti-Terrorism Center of the FSB of Russia.

      I don’t know how in the UAE, but for an armed attack on our nuclear power plant, at least a battalion of trained infantry with reinforcements in the form of heavy artillery and armored vehicles will be required. And this is just to fight and not be smeared by soldiers of the military unit from the territory of the nuclear power plant

      The leaders of the Beloyarsk NPP agreed to be the first to undergo exclusive special forces testing.
      Developing training sabotage, future scouts carefully examined the object and made an action plan. They prescribed every step, identified all blind spots and weaknesses. On the appointed day, employees of the Beloyarsk NPP security service activated all security systems.
      “Counterintelligence was fully involved so that no groups would get in there. But they managed to penetrate, ”said Sergey Golov, colonel of the KGB of the USSR, head of the KUOS (1983-1993).

      To capture the Beloyarsk NPP saboteurs took 42 seconds. Only 42 seconds, for which they reached and conditionally mined nuclear reactors. However, not a single electronic protection system worked. If such a "diversion" happened in real life, these seconds could be the last for many residents of our country.

        And in what year were these teachings? To be honest, this information is news to me. In 42 seconds ... mined nuclear reactors ...? Somehow, these data confuse me ... request Penetrate well, but mine ...
        And what does it mean that they mined a nuclear reactor? The reactor is a pretty big thing, it also has elements. What is mined? Mashzal? Could, but what does it give? BSCH? It's funny, just to get there it will take so much time ... And at the locks / vestibules in front of the control room the thickness is such that my mother is ... What else?
        At the Volgodonsk NPP, we also had penetration exercises in the years 2000-2003. Pennant is spinning in my head, but I'm not sure.
        Conditional terrorists tried to get in different ways: according to forged documents through the checkpoint (and it was possible to get to the station freely by trolleybus, then he still walked, No. 5 or 2), under water through diversion and underwater channels, infantry, on hang gliders. Did not work out.
        At the installation, the parties were indicated to the use of any forces and means, except for firearms and cold steel, full contact. Under such conditions, guard groups and "saboteurs" clashed in the area of ​​the connection between the cooling pond and the discharge channel. The guys from the military unit told me that Mesilov was noble - no one wanted to concede. Ended in a military draw and broken noses and a pair of limbs.

            Okay then. Still, even in the late 90s it was possible to pass an unauthorized person into the territory of the nuclear power plant by passing a “self-propelled” red color. It is clear that he will not go very far.

            I’ll tell you a secret- if the guards had thrown a bucks at the top, then they wouldn’t have to go to prison ...
            The security itself would have locked it in five minutes ....

          Such promptness most likely resulted from a preliminary detailed acquaintance with the object in what is called live + place and start time.
          But in the case when only inspection due to the fence + satellite images is available, then difficulties may arise. Even in the case of acquaintance with the project documentation, the sabotage can run into a missing door after the fact or a latch transferred by half a meter.

      I would agree with you about the Russian WWR reactors ..

          I don’t know about those specialists.
          Rather, I know (according to instructors), for example, about Arab pilots who underwent retraining in the USSR.
          The time for their retraining was required much more than for pilots from the GDR, and the result was not very (I emphasize - from the words).
          However, it seems to me that they are quite effective officials and managers.
          Maybe nothing, however

          About oil
          “At present, oil revenues account for 18% of the GDP of the United Arab Emirates.”
          $ 40,711 GDP per capita - 25 indicator in the world

          Well, now, does it remind you of anything?

          “Immediately after independence in the UAE as a whole, and in the emirate of Abu Dhabi in particular, a five-year state economic planning program was introduced, which indicated the main priorities for the development of industry and areas for investing funds. In the early 80s, such plans were already in every emirate. Later they began to apply even deeper strategic planning.

          Now the country is implementing the plan "Vision of the UAE 2021", the leading Emirates respectively - "Economic Vision of Abu Dhabi 2030" and "Industrial Strategy of Dubai 2030". Longer plans include shorter ones, such as the vision of “Dubai 2021.”
          Not only oil and gas production is developing.
          Developing Industry Education Healthcare Science, etc., etc.
          And systematically.

    True, South Korea launched its first reactor in 1989, when work in the north was not shaky, not swell. But DPRK never built its own reactor
