| The challenge
Established in 2016, Nawah Energy Company (Nawah) will operate and maintain Units 1 to 4 at the Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant, the first nuclear energy plant in the UAE and the region, located in the Al Dhafra region, Abu Dhabi.
Veolia has been contracted to provide complete waste management and industrial services onsite under a high security zone.
A comprehensive and innovative waste management approach was imminent as BNPP is first of its kind in the Middle East and Veolia expertise needed to be at the core of the waste management operations on site.

Veolia has provided Nawah energy company with high quality waste management services in high security zoning with dedicated manpower and specialized fleet of vehicles and equipment.
