UrduPoint News reported that the construction of the first Egyptian nuclear power plant Dabaa, assisted by the Russian state nuclear corporation Rosatom, will begin around June 2020, when all necessary approvals will be received. Dr Amgad Alwakeel, project director of the Egyptian Nuclear Power Plants Authority, said that "Since the moment the project launched last December, our department has been doing all that is necessary for its practical implementation ... It envisages three stages. The first, preparatory stage, which began in December 2017 and is currently underway, will last around two and a half years. In this period, all the necessary approvals and licenses will be granted, and [supporting] infrastructure will be built.”

According to Alwakeel, upon receipt of all necessary licenses, which should be around June 2020, the reactors will start being built. He added that "This stage will start as soon as we are licensed to start the work. It will take five and a half years and will result in the end of the construction and receiving documentation that would authorize the launch. This stage will also comprise the training of personnel who will work at the plant.”
