ENEC renews its commitment to Al Gharbia by supporting Al Dhafra Sports Club

ABU DHABI: As part of its continuous efforts to support the economic and social development of Al Gharbia (the Western Region) of Abu Dhabi, the Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation, ENEC, has signed a sponsoring agreement with the Al Dhafra Sports and Cultural Club for the seasons 2013-2014 and 2014-2015. To commemorate the occasion, Khalifa Mattar Al Tunaiji, Chairman of the Board of the Al Dhafra Football Company, presented a club shield to ENEC Chief Executive Officer, Mohamed Al Hammadi.

“ENEC is continuing with its commitment towards the Western Region by supporting its economical and social development,” said Mr. Al Hammadi. “We are happy to announce our partnership with Al Dhafra Sports and Cultural Club to support sports and social activities for people of all ages in the club.” “Through Al Dhafra Sports and Cultural Club, we are able to connect with citizens of different ages in the Western Region in order to raise awareness of the U.A.E.’s peaceful nuclear energy programme and its importance to the economy and the future of the U.A.E.. We will also have access to potential students from the Western Region for our Energy Pioneers programme and we will be able to introduce them to the role they can play in securing the future of energy in the U.A.E.,” he added.

“We are honoured and grateful to have a prestigious organisation such as ENEC on board as a sponsor,” said Mr. Al Tenaiji. “The support will help develop the club’s community role and further motivate our players to shine at the upcoming football season.” Through the sponsoring agreement, ENEC aims to raise awareness of the U.A.E.’s peaceful nuclear energy programme in Western Region citizens. ENEC is committed to a productive and long-term partnership with the Western Region of Abu Dhabi, where the U.A.E.’s first nuclear energy plants are being constructed. This project will result in significant economic benefits for the region, such as creating new jobs and stimulating the development of local infrastructure and services.

Working closely with the Western Region Municipality, the Western Region Development Council and the Urban Planning Council, ENEC will continue to support and invest in the Western Region community and economy over the life of the nuclear program. In addition, as part of its commitment to transparency, ENEC has hosted a series of forums in the Western Region to educate and update the society on the U.A.E.’s peaceful nuclear energy programme and the future career opportunities that will be provided for Emiratis in the programme. ENEC is working to deliver a world-class peaceful nuclear energy program to the U.A.E.. By 2020, four nuclear energy plants will be generating up to a quarter of the nation’s electricity supply.
