British design, engineering, and project management company Atkins and EDF Energy have introduced its nuclear training academy in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The academy aims to support the development of nuclear leadership and safety culture in the Middle East.

EDF Energy’s safety and assurance for generation director Mike Harrison said: "The nuclear industry is unique in its approach to collective learning, particularly in improving safety.

"The passion among all organisations, including EDF Energy and Atkins, to share knowledge and expertise is unlike any other industry.

"The nuclear industry is unique in its approach to collective learning, particularly in improving safety."

"EDF Energy is the a subsidiary of EDF SA and we are able to bring the experience to bear of our French colleagues alongside industry partners from across the world."

The nuclear consultancy Atkins is supporting EDF Energy for the first time in an international commercial environment.

Atkins’ Middle East and Africa nuclear strategy head David Haboubi said: "EDF Energy’s expertise and Atkins’ long-standing relationship in supporting the development of the UAE’s peaceful nuclear programme makes this a win for all involved.

"We have a deep knowledge of local processes, people and culture, which will complement EDF Energy’s world-renowned leadership development programme."
