UAE's Mohamed Al Hammadi elected chairman of World Nuclear Association


Mohamed Ibrahim Al Hammadi, Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation's (ENEC) Managing Director and CEO, has been selected as Chair Elect of the World Nuclear Association's (WNA) Board of Directors. 

This positions him to become Chairman of the WNA in 2024.

The WNA supports nuclear energy programmes worldwide, with its members responsible for 70 per cent of global nuclear energy generation.
