Recently, South Korea's Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power (KHNP) company has been selected as a single-source supplier of turbine islands for the plant, alongside four reactors that will be built by Russia.

Described as a project that is as significant and transformative as the Aswan High Dam, the construction of Egypt's El Dabaa Nuclear Power Plant is expected to begin in July 2022. To be built in the Matrouh governorate along the coastlines of the Mediterranean Sea, the El Dabaa Nuclear Power Plant will be the first time Egypt harnesses nuclear power as an energy source.
