The United Arab Emirates continues writing its own history as a leading country in Green Energy Sector including #nuclear. On June 29, 2021, under the #EFusion nuclear cooperation initiative organized by GIFEN (Groupement des Industriels Français de l’Energie Nucléaire) with the support of Business France (Export), Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation, and Nawah Energy Company: NUVIA (Vinci Company), Sigma Engineering Works ( a Mazrui Energy Service company), and Independent Enterprises and Companies Representation (IECR), have launched the first-ever company in the Middle East specialized in nuclear plant operational support services, called NUVIA SIGMA.
NUVIA SIGMA is the result of a joint venture between NUVIA, a subsidiary VINCI group – the world leader in construction and concessions, and SIGMA ENGINEERING WORKS (SEW), a Mazrui Energy Services Company.
The new company is the result of the significant demand for cutting-edge expertise to address the UAE’s needs in the development of one of the most demanding industries: nuclear power. From its representative office located in Abu Dhabi, and its service center in El Ruways, NUVIA SIGMA will ensure close relationships with our clients, supporting them from design to the construction, operations, and maintenance of their facilities.
NUVIA SIGMA’s ambition is to localize and further develop new skills and nuclear operation support know-how in the United Arab Emirates.
Olaf Grimm, General Manager of Sigma Engineering Works (SEW), said: “It is important for the World and our Economy to support the Global Energy transition and invest in Green Energies. With our partners NUVIA and ICER, we are happy to establish NUVIA SIGMA, the first-ever UAE Nuclear Service Company. A true milestone in developing industrial services in the UAE considering the high operating standards required by the Nuclear industry in particular. Thanks to our Partners and everyone involved in getting us to this point. “
